This programme offers a multidisciplinary approach to international relations, responding to evolving notions of our global environment to equip you with the tools you need to understand and question global issues in the 21st century.
You will acquire an in-depth knowledge of the way national and transnational political forces have shaped the modern world and continue to shape our lives, and also the means to understand and express this in one or more foreign languages.
