Course content

International relations deals with the most important issues in the modern world – issues such as globalisation, trade, development, integration, terrorism, war and peace, human rights and climate change. It does so in a way that combines theoretical insights with detailed practical analyses.

The aim of this course is to allow you to develop your ability to understand and interpret the modern world. The programme is built around a strong core of international politics, but also draws on other disciplines such as history, economics, sociology and cultural studies. The objective is to encourage our students to engage critically with both the theoretical and practical dimensions of contemporary global politics.
