Course summary

Why International Politics? We live in an increasingly globalised society. Organisations and governments are looking for people who understand how decisions are made across economic, social and political institutions. This course aims to help you critically engage with issues such as conflict resolution, the growth of democracy and development and international systems of governance. On this course we'll help you develop the transferable skills that employers are looking for in the real world. Previous Politics graduates have gone on to roles in education, the media, business, politics, charities, human resources and within the community*. We also received 100% overall student satisfaction for politics in the National Student Survey 2020.*LinkedInHow will you learn? * Our lecturing team will give you the opportunity to explore the factors influencing social and political change. Our lecturers will draw on their research expertise in ways that could stimulate and inspire you, and you’ll be encouraged to develop your own debating and research skills in a supportive environment too.* We’ll give you the chance to undertake a work placement in your second year to gain crucial insights into the professional and political world. You might be working with an elected representative, charitable organisations, local government, media or an educational institution. * As the course looks at politics with an international perspective, you could choose to study a foreign language. You might also get the opportunity to study abroad for a term in your second year. * We’ll give you the opportunity to take part in lots of extra-curricular activities. From special guest lecturers such as Members of Parliament and political figures, through to student-led debates, the focus is very much on getting you involved and active in the political world. The Politics provision at Huddersfield is impressive. The courses offer up-to-date content, delivered and assessed in engaging and innovative ways. The modules are underpinned by fine research and scholarship. The courses are designed to advance not only the academic skills of the students, but a considerable amount of attention is also given to embedding and developing the transferable skills that will serve graduates well in the job market. ~ Dr Eamonn O'Kane, External Examiner.
