International Relations

On this degree you’ll look at international relations from a huge range of perspectives. You’ll consider the causes and outcomes of conflict between – and within – countries, global economic crises and their consequences and the importance of organisations such as the European Union or United Nations. You’ll study immigration patterns and the challenges they raise for would-be migrants and states. You’ll learn about human rights, geopolitical dynamics such as the rise of China and questions of development, poverty, famine, disease and gender equality, within the international system. In learning about these issues, you’ll study different regions in the world from the Asia Pacific, to Latin America, to Europe, Africa, the United States, and beyond. You’ll be taught by academic staff who are active researchers and experts in their field. And you’ll have the opportunity to take part in study trips, internships and placements in Britain and Europe, as well as an extended period of study abroad. The course will provide you with the necessary knowledge and study skills to gain a sophisticated understanding of how the world works. **Course Structure** **Year 1** Your degree will begin with an overview of the key questions and debates within the discipline of international relations. You’ll explore different ways of thinking about the world from liberalism to Marxism to feminism. You’ll also explore different understandings of key issues within global politics, from war, conflict and security through to issues around development, the environment, famine and identity. **Year 2** As you progress in your degree, you will be encouraged to specialise in your studies by taking modules that focus on more specific topics or regions of the world. This allows you to help shape your expertise around those things about which you are most passionate. **Year 3** You’ll become increasingly independent in your learning, with possibilities including writing a dissertation on a topic you’ve chosen. You’ll also have the chance to kick-start your career with an internship, work placement or work shadowing. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
