Course Summary

This degree programme combines training in politics, international relations and sociology with specialist modules on Russia and Eastern Europe. The degree provides graduates with the skills to analyse contemporary issues in European and international politics and society.

Your learning

You will also receive regular written work, including essays, exercises and case study analyses.
