Gain a world-class education in international relations theory and modern political thought. This degree will give you a comprehensive view of the interlinking disciplines of politics and international relations. You'll achieve a firm understanding of government, political thought, empirical and theoretical approaches to international relations, and how multiple levels of political governance – national, regional and international – interact in the world. The programme offers a huge variety of module options, allowing you to specialise in particular themes, topics and areas. You can examine global ethics, US foreign policy, race and racism in world politics or the intricacies of the European Union. You may also choose modules from other schools, covering subjects such as English, history, geography and languages. You have the opportunity to study abroad in your third year, immersing yourself in the culture and politics of another country.
