Course summary

International Relations and Development looks at how politics, economics and law are interconnected throughout the world, analysing the foreign policies of countries and states, and explores the challenges facing developing and developed countries in the fight against global poverty. Throughout this course you will gain the all-round skills needed for a modern working world, such as critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and creativity. The programme includes a specially designed Working in Development module, which will provide hands-on experience of common tools used in development projects and programmes. You will also have the opportunity to undertake a work placement through our integrated Professional Development module. You will have the chance to take part in an International Model NATO Conference in Washington DC. This experience provides you with a unique opportunity to participate in a role-play exercise of decision-making at NATO, working with delegates from universities and institutions across the globe. In your third year you will undertake a study visit to a low- or middle-income country, allowing you to meet a range of actors working in a development context.
