Course summary

- From the local to the global: how the world works- Making a difference: a course which combines theoretical study and its practical application- Networks and partnerships: working with others to develop your personal and professional skills Explore the complexities of the contemporary world through an examination of the mechanisms for, or absence of, international governance; security, economics, and globalisation; and the relationships between different states. You'll examine the structures and practices of international relations – from the high ideals of the post-1945 settlement to the different realities of local and national politics, governmental ambitions, and corporate power, and their impact internationally. Beyond concepts of the state and the formal interactions between governments and government agencies, you’ll also be able to consider the interplay of local, regional and international events and perspectives, and the ways in which ‘international relations’ are shaped as much on the ground as they are in the UN Security Council or the International Court of Justice. This might encompass the work of NGOs or the impact of ‘soft diplomacy’, or the interconnected communities of writers, artists and performers and their contribution to campaigns against international inequalities and injustices.The course has been designed to enable you to acquire specialised subject knowledge, develop practical and professional skills and apply both to contemporary challenges, issues and debates. Learning how to do is as important to us as learning about, and you’ll be able to work on a series of projects which look out from the University and into the city, the region and the wider world. We want you to be able to develop demonstrable skills and experience, which may include leading a project team, evaluating and acting on alternative responses to a defined challenge, or pitching an idea to one of our many partner organisations, and wherever possible following this through to implementation.
