In order to understand contemporary international politics, you explore government and society from the perspective of state organisations, non-state bodies, and international institutions and groups.
You consider a variety of relevant contemporary topics including, but not limited to, war and conflict; climate change; trade and finance; the rise of populist politics; big power politics; and the United Nations’ Security Council. As part of your studies, you gain the skills necessary to evaluate critically the key issues and debates involved.
The core modules encourage you to engage with the interests and research specialisms of staff while allowing space for discussion of contemporary issues that are of the upmost importance in a rapidly changing world. 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). Optional modules include Political Futures, Thucydides, E.H.Carr and Power Transition in International Politics, Political Economy of Money and Finance, and Gender and National Security.
