Course summary

The Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in International Relations is an interdepartmental multi-disciplinary programme addressing key global challenges, issues and approaches to politics. This three- year undergraduate course will provide you with a sophisticated understanding of International Relations, both as a subject of academic study and as intellectual preparation for a wide range of career choices. You will develop the ability to handle a broad range of evidence, analyse complex issues and present arguments in a clear, concise and effective manner, both orally and in writing.

Key benefits

  • Your learning will be supported by leading international experts who work closely with governments, armed forces and NGOs globally, including specialists on all the major regions of the world, making King's a leading centre for the study of international relations, conflicts and conflict resolutions.
  • The degree features a variety of modules, enabling you to develop your specialist interests covering a wide range of diverse areas.
  • This course draws cross-departmental expertise from War Studies, European & International Studies and The Dickson Poon School of Law
  • King’s location in the heart of London, gives unparalleled access to government, the media, museums, as well as major libraries and research institutes
  • Employability in numerous fields including the government, NGO sector, International Organisations, diplomacy, political analysis, journalism and much more.

The prime, central position beside the River Thames brings outstanding advantages, and as a student you will enjoy the excellent social and cultural opportunities of the capital. The department is close to the seat of government, the City, the Royal Courts of Justice and the Inns of Court, the Imperial War Museum and the National Maritime Museum. This generates interaction between the study and practice of security and foreign policy.

Employability

Our graduates go on to work in a range of fields including government (most commonly in Ministries of Defence and Foreign Affairs in the UK and abroad), academia, journalism, banking (often in emerging markets or risk analysis), research and policy think-tanks, humanitarian organisations and international organisations.
