    Lingnan University’s Department of Political Science, has introduced a new taught Master of Arts in International Affairs (MAIA). It aims to provide postgraduates with an understanding of key subjects including international and comparative politics, developmental studies, international security, environmental politics, and Greater China plus issues like nationalism and political culture.

    The Master of Arts in International Affairs programme is a one-year full-time study. Students must complete four compulsory courses and four electives.

    They cover the theoretical underpinnings, as well as detailed analysis of important international and Asia-Pacific issues. It will equip students with the necessary conceptual tools to comprehend rapidly changing global and regional forces that are shaping our world. It will strengthen their analytical abilities, help develop the capacity for original research, and bolster presentation, debating and writing skills. The Master of Arts in International Affairs is primarily designed for those with a first degree in politics-related disciplines, social sciences, the humanities, law, or journalism. But it is also suitable for professionals in business and communications who want to broaden their outlook and advance their career prospects.

    Possession of a MAIA degree would help one to develop a career in being civil servant, journalist, corporation executive, diplomat, political and economic analyst, teacher and NGO worker, just to name a few among different careers that require a deeper understanding of international and regional affairs.

    The programme is also a good basis for further PhD study.
