Field of Study
International relations studies the complex relations between states and international organisations in areas such as economics, law, politics and security. Core questions include: what is security, what causes conflict, what is power and how is it exercised and justified? It also investigates deeper questions relating to how we understand and conceptualise contemporary global transformations. Our programme offers a balance between theory and practice. You will gain a broad understanding ofthe key theories and concepts associated with international relations as well as gaining practical experience of the policy process. Instrumental in this is our flagship module, Policy and Persuasion, which will prepare you to participate actively in many fields of work, including politics, advocacy and business.
Your first year will introduce you to the key analytical approaches used in the study of global politics, drawing on international political events in historical and contemporary settings. Your second year modules will focus on contemporary history, global society, political economy and security and prepare you for your final year dissertation by providing training in research techniques. You may pursue your own independent research project during your third year while taking optional modules based on the research expertise of our staff.
