They concern fundamental choices about the ways in which societies are organised and the way we are governed, both within states and in the international community. You will be taught by researchers in the fields of international relations and politics, doing cutting edge research in key issues relevant to your studies and working experience.Whether you want to understand Brexit, the crisis in the Middle East or climate change, you need to understand why governments make particular decisions and how different groups interact within states and across borders. A degree in International Relations and Politics at Keele will equip you with the necessary tools to understand and explain how power operates and how we might begin to tackle the most pressing domestic and global challenges. You will study contemporary and policy-relevant issues such as democracy, global inequality, protest, globalisation, regime change, energy security, environmental sustainability, human rights, gender politics and terrorism. You can underpin these issues through an in-depth study of particular countries such as Britain, the United States and Russia, as well as regions in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.Our graduates are to be found in a wide range of jobs from commerce to industry as well as government, the civil service, journalism, law, security services, political research, diplomacy and teaching. Some of our prominent graduates include Laurence Mann, political private secretary to David Cameron, Jonty Bloom, a Business correspondent for the BBC, Farah Faisal, High Commissioner for the Maldives and Paul Rimmer, Director at the Ministry of Defence, as well as a number of current MPs. You can gain an enhanced degree title that includes competency in a foreign language. You can also study abroad for a semester at one of our many partner universities across the world.
