Course summary

The programme gives you the opportunity to combine an International Relations and Politics degree with a modern language over a three year degree programme.This degree aims to provide you with an excellent understanding of politics and governance at national and international levels while also allowing you to learn a foreign language that will be of value whether you work in government or in the private or voluntary sectors. Many of our graduates have sought careers with an international dimension not only in government but also in international organisations, transnational companies, and international non-governmental bodies after finishing their studies.International Relations is a branch of Political Science that examines the role of states, international alliances, non-governmental organisations and multinational companies in an increasingly globalised world.Like its non-language counterpart, you will have the opportunity to study major issues in global politics, such as the politics of international security and the role of human rights in the world today.Distinctive featuresThe opportunity to combine politics with proficiency in a modern language without the requirement for the year abroad, necessary as part of a traditional joint politics and language degree. You will be taught by academics, many of whom are world experts in their field. The department has unrivalled academic links with the National Assembly for Wales via the Welsh Governance Centre and long established relationships with national and international organisations such as the Westminster parliament, European Union and NATO. This unique status gives students the opportunity to supplement their learning by engaging with political decision makers in the real world.
