Course summary

International Relations encompasses diverse theoretical approaches and perspectives, from liberalism and realism to feminism, postcolonialism, critical theory and environmental thought.Our BSc Econ International Relations provides you with the opportunity to study this exciting and important subject in its depth and breadth. It has been deliberately structured to cover both traditional and new areas of the discipline in a manner informed by current scholarly debates and global political concerns and developments.You will be taught by academics who are leading researchers in their fields. As a consequence you will be exposed to research-led teaching in areas across the breadth of the discipline. International Relations has developed from a relatively restricted field of study concerned with the relations between states and the causes of war, to a rich and broad disciplinary field which addresses a wide breadth of questions critical to our contemporary global world. These range from still-crucial concerns such as war, security and terrorism, nuclear politics, and the Cold War, to digital technologies and cyber-security, global environmental politics and climate change, colonialism and anticolonialism, tourism, popular culture and everyday life. Distinctive features•A shared first year with related programmes to provide the foundation for a broad skill set in political studies.•Module options that give you the space to develop and pursue your own interests as your grasp of the field is progressively enriched and broadened over the three years of study.•A broad and deep education in global affairs and a rich understanding of what international politics is and ought to be.
