This is an American-style degree, four years in length. The International Relations major emphasises the understanding of global issues and world cultures, and traces the political, social, ideological and economic history of the world. You will develop a detailed knowledge of the major branches of the field, including international security, foreign policy, international political economy, international law and organisations and the international relations theory that holds it all together. The curriculum is interdisciplinary and you will examine the complexities of different regions in the world, international organisations, diplomacy, war and peace, and human rights. Four courses in a non-native language are required (this is waived for who are studying in English as their second language). January start date - apply on our website. September start date - apply through UCAS.
