International Relations: At its heart, International Relations, is a discussion - at the individual, state and international level - it is about power within a global context. Its breadth allows for the development of student-oriented specialisms. State and non-state actors are examined through theoretical and practical lenses. Issues concerning security, war, terrorism, humanitarian interventions, the environment, the economy and how governments communicate are key areas. International Development Studies (IDS) will help you to understand the dominating influences on all aspects of 21st-century life. Governments, businesses, environmental and humanitarian groups and individuals recognise the need to understand more about development issues and how they can be addressed. You can combine IDS with one of a range of subjects providing additional expertise that might be applied in a development context.
