International Relations and Modern History

On this course you’ll explore current global political events, connections and decisions. At the same time you’ll establish a ‘long view’ of the events and processes that have given rise to these current situations. You’ll come to understand how things that happen in one place can have major consequences for people and communities living on the other side of the world. You’ll become familiar with the huge range of actors involved, from states and their governments, to stateless organisations such as Greenpeace or Al Qaeda, to international bodies such as the European Union and United Nations, to corporations, social classes, diasporas, and even individuals. Alongside all of this you’ll examine how the contemporary international system of separate states has roots going back more than three hundred years. You’ll be equipped to make sense of today’s global order, and to debate, argue and think about how it has developed throughout recent history. You’ll have the opportunity to explore how these two disciplines relate to one another, allowing you to gain a fascinating perspective on the world around you today. The two disciplines of International Relations and History are taught across two Schools at the University, both of which are very well known for the quality of their teaching and research. During the course you will have the opportunity to take part in study trips, internships and placements in Britain and Europe as well as having the option of a semester abroad in your second year. **Course Structure** **Year 1** Your degree will begin with an overview of the key questions and debates within the disciplines of International Relations and History. You’ll explore different ways of thinking about the world, as well as key issues within global politics, from war, conflict and security through to economic, environmental and social issues. You’ll learn and develop the skills of historians and international relations scholars, and have the chance to think about how they relate to one another. **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 historical periods. This allows you to help shape your expertise around those things about which you are really passionate. **Year 3** You’ll become increasingly independent in your learning, with possibilities including writing a dissertation on a topic you have 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.
