Looking at the contemporary world, two things are apparent. The first is that our world is increasingly one shaped by international politics and by the global connections between nations, not by domestic politics. The second is that the current state of our world and our societies is the product not of the moment, but of events and processes that have occurred over time.
Studying The BA International Relations and Modern History degree programme enables you to make sense of this new global order, and how it has developed throughout recent history. You will be able to explore how these two disciplines relate to one another and how they are intrinsically linked, allowing you to gain a unique perspective in international relations.
Core components of this degree programme are taught within Political, Social and International Studies and the School of History. These two disciplines, both known for the quality of their teaching and research, have devised a programme enabling you to trace both trends and theories related to international relations in the context of the study of modern history.
