Language and/with Global Politics with International Experience - Birkbeck, University of London

Combine studying a modern language and its associated culture with a study of global politics, to a high level. This programme allows you to reach a high level of competence in a modern language and to acquire advanced knowledge of a range of cultural topics, while also focusing on the nature of politics at the global level: international relations, political economy, and war and security studies. You will gain the skills necessary for political, sociological, historical and economic analysis in a learning environment that is supportive, radical and exciting. You will also have the opportunity to study a number of cross-cultural modules which will allow you to explore specific themes across a variety of language-speaking areas. The third year is normally spent abroad at a partner institution to allow you to develop your language skills and your knowledge of the culture of the language-speaking area you are studying. You can also apply for a three-year version of the programme without a year abroad and you will normally also be able to transfer to this version of the programme during your first or second year of study if you decide you do not wish to study outside of the UK. This programme is also available for part-time evening study over four years or six years.
