The module is a graduate level introduction to International Relations (IR) theory. The course 1) introduces the students to main theoretical approaches in IR, core texts and their objects of study and 2) examines their meta-theoretical foundations to evaluate a theoretical lens. The autumn semester introduces the theories, debates, and major scholarly traditions in IR, which have become mainstream approaches and established schools of theory. The spring semester focuses on critical and reflectivist approaches in IR and introduces the students to key thinking, central debates and recent scholarship of this form of theorizing.
