Our Politics and International Relations degree provides an integrated approach for understanding the comparative dimensions of politics at the local, regional, national and global level. This course enables you to develop specialist knowledge of important political actors and key trends in international politics, and your critical and analytical skills in the understanding of political problems at both the national and international levels. We make full use of our unique location, and many of our students gain placements through our successful internship programme with members of Parliament, governmental and non-governmental organisations. We also enjoy excellent links with employers, and our graduates go on to develop careers in various sectors, including the Civil Service, NGOs, international organisations such as the EU or UN, policy and research, teaching, journalism and politics
Year 1 (Credit Level 4)
This level introduces you to the study of politics and international relations. You will examine political concepts and political ideologies, the emergence of the state as a national and international actor, comparative politics of different nation-states, and contemporary issues in international politics. Your option modules will give you the chance to address environmental politics, the politics of immigration, the global economy, and globalisation and international governance.
Years 2 and 3 (Credit Levels 5 and 6)
Building on your first year, these levels provide you with advanced modules in political theory, comparative politics and international relations. Particular emphasis is given to humanitarian intervention, geopolitics, classical political thinkers, and important themes in international security today. You are taught by leading academics who will challenge you to think about politics and international relations in new and exciting ways. We encourage you to develop as a political researcher and you will undertake an independent research project in your final year. From week to week you will be invited to participate in the wide variety of events which we organise, from seminars on cutting-edge thinking to workshops and conferences with leading academic figures from all over the world.
