Course content

This is a joint degree with the International Relations Department which allows students to sample courses in both departments. Those taking the programme therefore gain a feel for both IR theory, taught by leading experts (see International Relations Department) in the field, and recent international history. This gives them a chance to understand and appreciate both the theoretical and the empirical approach to the study of international relations.

The programme provides an excellent preparation for careers in business or consulting, government or international agencies, the media, politics and law, or for advanced academic research.
