Course summary

Explore the driving forces and complexities of relationships between countries and cultures in the 21st century close to where the G7 leaders met in 2021. Unpick all aspects of international relations from law to economic, diplomacy and governance to help you build your own critical thinking and analytical skills and gain invaluable skills for the future to navigate some of the major issues facing society. Combine the theory with lots of practice so you can better understand the decision-making that drives change. Hone your skills by representing Plymouth at the model UN or representing an NGO at a simulated Earth Summit in our unique practical assessments. Unlike other courses, your degree at Plymouth really is what you make it. From the second year, you can choose to add in modules from across the School of Society & Culture’s 17 disciplines. You can learn how to report on live issues in international relations with a module in Creative Writing or develop your skills as an orator with a focus on Acting or Drama.Learn from hands-on, research-active staff who are leaders in their subjects and can connect you into parliament and major NGOs for work experience and placements to ensure you are ready to make a difference.Choose from a range of societies representing the major political parties and key social issues to get active on the local political scene. Our students were at the G7 Summit – both expressing their views and reporting for the local paper.
