Politics and International Relations examines the influences, dynamics, conflicts and interactions of governments, individuals, organisations, and countries. It provides an understanding of domestic and international political issues, and establishes crucial skills that open up exciting opportunities, inside and outside the political world. Teamwork, strong writing skills and the ability to debate issues, solve problems and articulate opinions will give you a head start with a wide range of potential employers. BA(Hons) Politics and International Relations at UWE Bristol allows you to study both Politics and International Relations on an equal basis or specialise in aspects of either subject. From looking at how governments operate and analysing the way popular movements, cultures and great thinkers view conflicts, to examining the EU, terrorism and the abuse of human rights; you will have a tremendous range of modules from which to choose. With the opportunity to engage with other disciplines such as criminology and psychology, you will benefit from the support of inspirational staff and interactive, leading-edge teaching. In addition, our focus on developing professional skills in work settings is reflected in placement opportunities in Years 2 and 3.
