International Politics and Languages

How do major international institutions, issues and ideas shape our societies? International Politics concerns issues of power, alliances, conflict and peace, trade, the role of NGOs and the notion of an international society. Through your study, you’ll gain insight into international decision-making in the United Nations, the European Union, NATO, the World Trade Organisation and others. More widely, we’ll equip you with the kinds of intellectual and analytical skills that are attractive to many employers. Politics graduates are to be found in commerce and industry, as well as the civil service, journalism, law and teaching.
