Interested in politics, global citizenship and international humanitarian aid? Our International Relations degree covers our global society. As citizens of a global society, we’re becoming increasingly connected by communication technology and rapid transportation, international relations between different countries and states now play a vital role in our personal and professional life – affecting all aspects of work undertaken by governments, charities, educational establishments, multinational companies, the police and so on. On this course we aim to cover how our diverse and complex world works, investigating and helping students to gain an understanding of world politics and the major events that have shaped the post-1945 world. We will cover the evolution and interaction of different states and societies around the globe, exploring the history of world politics since World War II. We consider how foreign policy decision-makers and international organisations respond in the face of war, social movements, terrorism, political struggles, democratic advances and setbacks.
