    Hey usually in cases like this, universities are fully aware of the fact that courses (and their titles) can vary a lot. The two are very similar and focus on the same sort of field so I don't think it'll cause any issues. I applied for a few slightly different courses a few years ago and I didn't explicitly mention the titles for all in my PS but I still got all 5 offers! If it makes you feel better, perhaps just drop the words international politics once, so that you've mentioned it. After all, politics is a main part of international relations
