Politics and International Relations - Pathway in Politics from Keele University provides a high degree of focus, enabling you to engage with specific issues and carry out research into subjects of interest and relevance. You can build a tailored, systematic programme of study, choosing from our diverse collection of four different pathways – in Global Security, Politics, US Politics and International Relations – as well as a wide range of module choices. We also offer an MSc in International Diplomacy.
On this Politics pathway, you can learn more about the nature and role of fundamental political structures in Europe, the most regionally integrated political and economic environment in the world. Alternatively, you may wish to focus on issues of personal interest, environmental concerns like climate change, for example, or the impact of immigration policies on human rights.
The advanced research and cross-cultural communication skills you develop on this course, together with a critical insight into global concerns, politics, economics, governance and advocacy, place you in an excellent position to pursue a wide range of careers in the public, private and voluntary sectors.
Depending on your interests and passions, you could work for a political party, campaign or lobby group or pursue advisory and management roles in central or local government, charities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), international organisations, social research organisations, think tanks and universities.
