International Relations is a branch of Political Science that examines the role of states, international alliances, non-governmental organisations and multinational companies in an increasingly globalised world.
As part of this degree programme, you will have the opportunity to focus on global politics and world affairs as well as having the opportunity to attend a lecture series hosted by the University on International Relations & International Law, which has featured high profile speakers from institutions such as NATO and the UN Security Council.
In your first year you will concentrate on core modules, while in your second and third years you are able to choose from a wide range of optional modules.
International Relations and Politics graduates find careers in a wide range of fields. A further option is to go on to postgraduate study.
