Course summary

**This course is only available for advanced entry into year 2 and 3.**Global forces are shaping our decisions on crucial issues in contemporary international politics.On this course, you will develop an in-depth understanding of some of the crucial developments impacting our world including the rise of China and India, the crisis in Syria, the challenges of facing terrorism and the persistence of poverty and inequality in the global south. You'll be able to choose from a wide range of modules including Global Comparative Politics, Corruption and its Avoidance, Making of a Global World, Politics of Nationalism and American Presidency. Our teaching links theory and practice through simulations, engagement with House of Commons committees and the DMU Policy Commission – a supervised project-based module where staff and students work together to co-produce policy proposals in response to a contemporary political issue.**Key features:**- You will have the opportunity to go on field trips to the House of Commons and further afield to EU institutions in Brussels and our partner institution in Hong Kong.- DMU is the only university in the UK to hold both ‘Congress to Campus’ and ‘European Parliament to Campus’ events, featuring visits from prominent political figures to enhance your study experience.- DMU is recognised as a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence because of the high standards of research and teaching in European Studies.- You'll be able to enjoy an international experience linked directly to your studies through our DMU Global programme.
