Course summary

Combining the approaches and theories of International Relations with studies of modern and contemporary history, this course provides you with insight into understanding the rapidly changing world around us. Wars, revolutions, the global economy, BREXIT, climate change, society, migration and power all come together as themes in this carefully designed, immersive and overlapping programme of study.The International Relations: History and Global Politics award aims to develop your understanding of world events and global trends, knowledge of which will undoubtedly become increasingly essential in a less predictable world including a post pandemic and presumably post-Brexit Britain. The course focusses on the challenges of international relations today as well as providing, through the study of history, examples of the ways through which those challenges have been met in the past. It fosters your all-important problem-solving, communication, research and inquiry skills; providing study activities and assessments that encourage independence of thought, originality, critical self-awareness and advancing your future employability prospects. Small class sizes, ease of access to lecturers in tutorial classes, as well as the availability of one-to-one office meetings give the programme an intimate feel where political and historical problems are dissected and explored, and you are given the intellectual tools not only to think critically but to go and find out for yourself.Guided by experts in international organisations, security and intelligence as well as historians with various national and thematic interests, Staffordshire University’s research-led approach allows you to really get under the skin of the subjects you choose, gradually specialising in a topic studied at significant depth for your dissertation.The programme also allows our students to conduct work placements in a variety of areas from schools and museums, to political parties, charities and NGOs. Many of these placements can be partially credited toward the degree. Finally, our field excursions and trips are designed to bring home the reality, proximity and relevance of international politics to students who would otherwise see issues solely within an academic or theoretical context.The BA Hons International Relations: History and Global Politics aims to produce graduates who are reflective and critical learners with a global perspective. When you complete the course you will be aware not only of future challenges but of the importance of contextual understanding and research when facing them.Our aim is that our graduates become professional global citizens, leaving them prepared for the world of work and ready to face the unpredictable future challenges of a globalised world
