You will discover how people lived, and how they perceived and interacted with the world around them. Investigating past events, you will encounter war, injustice, new frontiers, political upheaval, ancient civilisations, invasions, conspiracies, catastrophes and revolutions. You will gain a firm grasp of the core theories of international relations and their underlying methods. You will get a broad grounding in contemporary government and world politics, including the changing nature of the modern state system.A wide variety of options means that you can pursue your own interests – with units becoming increasingly flexible as you progress through the course.
