By : Muhammad Choirul RosiqinInternational Relations Student @University of Muhammadiyah Malang

This subject is an academic discipline of International Relations Department, Theories of International Relations or “Teori Hubungan Internasional”(IR’s student of UMM called) will familiarise students with some of the major debates within the discipline. Muhammad Choirul RosiqinIt will also introduce them to key interdisciplinary conversations between IR and other disciplines such as history, philosophy and sociology. Although the course content is largely theoretical, we will refer to historical and contemporary developments as illustrative examples. We hope that this course will be a learning experience to nudge students to think creatively and critically.
The study of international relations (IR) can be defined as the thinking about the relations between political units in anarchical structures. A rough outline starts with concepts of “theory” and their different epistemological validity criteria and methodological functions for understanding international relations. It then deals with the different ontologies IR theories produce; their premises, characteristics, and consequences.
The course has ten units which are further divided into sub-units. Each sub-unit has a background reading that offers a basic introduction to the topic. Example: Unit – An Introduction of International Relations (Scott Burchill and Andrew Linklater), sub-Unit (Frameworks of analysis, Diversity of theory, Contested nature, The foundation of International Relations, Theories and disciplines, Explanatory and constitutive theory, What do theories of international relations differ about?, and Evaluating theories).
Students are requested to familiarize themselves with the introductory reading before the lecture and follow up with the specified essential and suggested readings, example: (John Baylis/Steve Smith (eds.): The Globalization of World Politics. An Introduction to International Relations. 3 rd ed). During class discussion, they will be expected not just to summarise, but also critically evaluate the essential reading and attempt to uncover all possible shades of an argument.
Objective: This course is designed to introduce students to the academic discipline of International Relations (IR). To make the student familiar with the intellectual history of IR in terms of its major debates and questioning “why” theories, or paradigm in field of study International Relations appeared.

    Thankfully, you can find a considerable amount of folks you are able to turn to for advice and guide in creating your choice. At most schools, you will find teachers that are professionally qualified to provide you detailed information about job qualifications. And you can talk more than your tips with members of the family and close friends who are consistently prepared to listen and to provide ideas.
