This topical degree course allows you to specialise in two disciplines, providing you with a greater career choice and a range of highly transferable skills. Working with academics who are specialists in their field, you’ll examine the issues surrounding the international community today. This includes terrorism, the environment, international aid, nuclear proliferation, human rights, cyberwarfare and the complex relationships between states. Learn one of the world’s leading languages while engaging with politics and culture. A number of practitioners will be invited from the government and non-governmental organisations to speak on a variety of modules, concentrating on subject specific knowledge and employability. You’ll also have the chance to visit places outside the University. Employability is central to every module, and in the final year you’ll have the opportunity to do a work-related learning module. This has included placements within a wide range of institutions, such as the United Nations, aid agencies, think-tanks and embassies. You can even opt to do your work placement in the UK or in another country.
