The optional Independent Study (Work Placement) module gives you the opportunity to build a wide range of transferable skills and personal networks to enhance your employment opportunities.
You study core modules including Theories of International Relations, Key Issues in Global Politics, Research Methods and Skills, and either Independent Study (Dissertation) or Independent Study (Volunteering).
