Course summary

The BSc International Relations and History course is aimed at students who wish to complement the in-depth understanding of the complex unfolding of historical events with a theoretical perspective on how international society is organised. This is a joint honours programme, with equal emphasis in each subject area.

International relations deal with the nature of the changing relations between states and with non-state actors. It studies the functioning of the international system – the forces, factors and interests, the customs, rules, norms, institutions and organisations from which the theory and history of its development are formed. History is a wide ranging and challenging subject to study. It seeks to understand the past and to make sense of the present, adding an important dimension to the understanding of many aspects of human society.

Our graduates have a range of skills and can fit into a variety of positions in modern life. Former students have followed careers in politics, journalism, media and publishing, advertising, marketing, and public relations, public administration, the Foreign Service, industry, the charity and development sector, finance, consulting and legal profession, as well as in research, teaching, library and archives.
