International Relations and Modern Languages

You’ll be taught by academic staff who are active researchers and experts in their field. In the language part of your degree you’ll develop and expand your ability to read, write, and communicate within your chosen language. In your international relations modules, you’ll learn, critique and debate different understandings of the key actors and issues within the world today. How important are states in a globalised world of transnational corporations, non-governmental organisations, and international organisations, for example? What role does war and military power play within today’s international system? And how do we address shared challenges from terrorism, to climate change, to migration, to poverty and underdevelopment? Within UEA’s International Relations programme, this course is unique in offering you a year (rather than a semester) abroad to perfect your language skills. Students of French and Spanish will be able to choose whether to spend the year abroad at a university or in a work placement, or both. Students of Japanese will study at a partner university in Japan. **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. At the same time, you’ll spend time in classes developing your knowledge of your chosen modern language. This will improve your understanding of, and confidence in, your ability to read, write and communicate to degree level. **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** Students of French and Spanish can choose whether to spend the year abroad at a university or in a work placement, or both. Students of Japanese will study at a partner university in Japan. **Year 4** 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.
