Course summary

**About This Course**In this globalised world, knowledge of a modern language is an increasingly important skill which greatly enhances your career prospects. And this knowledge is particularly relevant to a subject like international relations. On this course you’ll hone your skills in French, Spanish or Japanese to graduate level, including a year spent abroad, whilst exploring the key issues and events within global politics today. Studying global politics and a language side by side isn’t just useful in terms of your future career. You’ll gain a particular insight into the culture of another country or region, helping you understand issues of politics and policy from another perspective.**Overview**You’ll be taught by academic staff who are active researchers and experts in their field. In the language part of your degree you’ll develop and expand your ability to read, write, and communicate within your chosen language. In your international relations modules, you’ll learn, critique and debate different understandings of the key actors and issues within the world today. How important are states in a globalised world of transnational corporations, non-governmental organisations, and international organisations, for example? What role does war and military power play within today’s international system? And how do we address shared challenges from terrorism, to climate change, to migration, to poverty and underdevelopment?Within UEA’s International Relations programme, this course is unique in offering you a year (rather than a semester) abroad to perfect your language skills. Students of French and Spanish will be able to choose whether to spend the year abroad at a university or in a work placement, or both. Students of Japanese will study at a partner university in Japan.**Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change. You should always confirm the details on the provider's website: www.uea.ac.uk
