My alma mater, the Graduate Studies in International Affairs at the Australian National University (the most highly regarded IR program in Australia) is offering a new course in International Relations next year:
"In 2010 the Graduate Studies in International Affairs program (GSIA) at the Australian National University is introducing an exciting new opportunity to study contemporary international relations and world politics.
The new Graduate Certificate in International Relations (GCIR) provides a targeted introductory program for those without academic background in this area of study. It also provides the possibility of a stepping-stone to the Graduate Diploma in International Affairs, the Master of International Affairs and the MA (International Relations)."
If you happen by chance to be in Canberra, there's an information evening this Wednesday, where Greg Fry, the director of the program and a few other academics will be on hand to discuss the program. Having studied International Relations at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and at different universities, I can honestly say that the GSIA is a fantastic program with excellent academic staff, interesting subjects (including the mandatory theory courses) and a good mix of students from all over the world.
