Course summary

On the International Relations Joint Honours programme at DMU you will learn how to analyse contemporary events in international politics and develop policy responses to them. Lecturers will help you to identify the underlying global forces that shape decisions on crucial issues like the rise of China, the Syrian crisis, climate change and development. You will benefit from innovative teaching approaches linking theory and practice such as simulations, engagement with House of Commons committees and the DMU Policy Commission. You can experience a unique learning environment, with the opportunity to participate in real debates, attend conferences and learn from guest speakers including prominent political figures such as the former Prime Minister Gordon Brown and the House of Commons Speaker, Rt Hon John Bercow. We are the only university in the UK to hold both Congress to Campus and European Parliament to Campus with former members of US Congress and former Members of European Parliament to enhance your study experience. You can join our lively Politics Society with topical debates and well-known guest speakers which have included David Blunkett and Alastair Campbell in previous years. There will be opportunity to attend talks from practitioners and alumni to help you develop an understanding of the range of potential careers for International Relations graduates. We are one of only three universities in the UK to be named a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in 2013, in recognition of research and teaching excellence in European studies. There will be opportunities to study abroad in countries such as Hong Kong, Germany and Belgium for up to a year with one of our Erasmus+ partner universities in Europe, or through a #DMUglobal international experience. We are rated in the top 10 most popular universities in the UK by UCAS.
