The University of Windsor allocates over $10,000,000 in scholarships, bursaries and awards to students annually. Many of our scholarships, bursaries and awards are funded by the contributions of our very generous donors who include alumni, faculty and staff, organizations and the community as a whole.
If you are considering a career in a competitive global environment, this program is for you. This is especially true if you are interested in a career in international diplomacy, in such international organizations as the United Nations, such non-governmental organizations as Amnesty International, the Canadian Foreign Service, and/or international business.
This is a unique and interdisciplinary program that combines several academic disciplines into a varied and fascinating study of global politics. Our program is based on a set of core Political Science courses and two concentrations selected from: Economics; Gender; History; Philosophy; Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies; Sociology; Geography and Globalization; and Languages (choice of French, Arabic, German, Italian or Spanish). You can also spend a semester overseas on International Exchange as one of your concentrations.
The International Relations program explores the complexities and challenges associated with international governance to better understand how politics works in the developed and developing world. Our faculty members conduct research in such areas as: peace and conflict resolution; Track II diplomacy, development and aid strategies; food security and hunger; international policy analysis; international trade and political economy; Middle Eastern and Islamic politics; African politics, democratic politics in post-Soviet states, oil and resource politics, and religion and politics.
The Liverpool Mechanics Institute was founded by people of power and influence who recognised the transformative effects of education and the impact that learning and aspiration could have on individuals, communities and society. It was the first such institution to be founded in England.
The University is named in honour of Sir John Moores, a true visionary and shrewd successful businessman, who founded in 1923, and headed until 1982, what was then the UK’s largest and most profitable privately owned company, Littlewoods, comprising retailing, mail order and the football pools.
Based in Liverpool, the impact of the family business was immense, and in 1987 the Polytechnic recognised Sir John’s outstanding contribution to the region’s business and community life by making him its first Honorary Fellow.
His philanthropic and cultural legacy is reflected in the biennial John Moores Painting Prize, established in 1957 to recognise the best contemporary painting in the UK. The University now collaborates with the College of Fine Arts in Shanghai University on the biennial John Moores Painting Prize (China) competition, which allows Chinese artists to complete a month-long residency at our Liverpool School of Art and Design.
Sir John’s eldest son, John Moores Jr, served as the University’s second Chancellor from 1994 to 1999, succeeding Henry Cotton. His eldest daughter, Lady Grantchester, was admitted as an Honorary Fellow of the University in 2015.
This small, pioneering movement was followed by the establishment of the Liverpool Institute and School of Art and the Liverpool Nautical College, and in 1900 Irene Mabel Marsh opened the IM Marsh campus. These organisations together laid the foundations for Liverpool John Moores University, an institution that has grown and flourished and continues to provide opportunities for all.
Today, with a vibrant community of over 23,000 students from over 100 countries world-wide, 2,400 staff and 250 degree courses, Liverpool John Moores University is one of the largest, most dynamic and forward-thinking universities in the UK.
