International Politics

International Politics is about how we tackle global challenges. World politics stands at a fascinating but difficult historical juncture, one that as political beings, we all need to understand, explain and, in part shape. With the relative decline of the ‘West’, the emergence of new powers and actors, and the increasingly complex and intertwined nature of local, national, regional, international and global problems, ‘international politics’ is entering a new era. The degree in International Politics offers students the opportunity to study the concepts, practices, policies, histories and regions that make up international politics as a discipline and to explore the ways in which, all these factors are undergoing radical transformation in the twenty-first century.
