Course Description

International Relations are never far from the news headlines as the world grows more interconnected through trade and migration, the internet and social media.
Blend the fields of politics, economics, history and law with our BA in International Relations as you explore our ever-changing political landscape.

With such a varied range of topics, it’s no wonder our graduates go on to such diverse and successful careers. This degree will prepare you for a career in international organisations, business, finance, government institutions, agencies, and the media.

It will provide you with specific knowledge in three core areas: International Relations theory and concepts, global institutions, and contemporary issues in international affairs.

You’ll be able to choose topics from a variety of electives including ‘International Human Rights’, ‘Conflict and Peace Studies’, ‘Foreign Policy Analysis’, ‘Diplomatic Studies’, ‘US Grand Strategy’, ‘Global Energy Politics’, and ‘Critical Globalization Studies’.

Our programme is designed to offer you a specialisation as you progress with your degree, according to your main area of interest. You can also take courses which allow you to specialise in the International Relations of different regions, including the USA, Latin America, the EU, Asia, Russia, Africa and the Middle East.

We’ll introduce you to the main concepts and approaches to the study of international relations and encourage you to analyse, interpret and evaluate world political events and issues.

It’s a broad remit as you’ll investigate security, nationalism and warfare while also addressing politics within international law and institutions, the global economy, and issues related to development and developing states.
