Course summary

Overview

Analyse the most significant issues of the 21st century, such as factors that influence states going to war, why some states are weaker than others are, and how global order is maintained. Our course will enable you to obtain an advanced understanding of the modern world, including the way in which states, regions and international organisations interact, and practice a range of methods and methodologies to support research and policy analysis.

Our wide range of core and optional modules – including Britain and European Integration, Global Health and International Trade Theory and Practice – will help you to develop the subject-specific knowledge and professional skills necessary for a career in any field related to international relations.

This course is ideal for those who wish to work in an international environment and where knowledge of international issues is essential, with our aim to prepare you for senior roles in private and public organisations where you can influence major decisions. Previous graduates from this course have landed roles with the European Union and UN agencies, non-governmental organisations and local government organisations in Leicester.

Key features

  • Tailor the course to your interests by choosing from a wide variety of optional modules.
  • Add an international experience to your CV by taking part in an overseas course-related trip offered through our DMU Global programme. Previously, students have travelled to Amsterdam to see the Transnational Institute and to hear a talk at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.
  • Benefit from the input of high-profile visiting scholars and academic staff. Previous guest speakers have included Alan Charlton, former UK Ambassador to Brazil, and former Members of US Congress Martin Frost and Phil Gingrey.

Graduate careers

The course prepares you for senior roles in public and private organisations where you can influence major decisions that affect us all.

There is real demand for suitably qualified managers who are interested in making a difference and who understand the implications of the global financial crisis, climate change, diplomacy, and sustainable development, health care and other issues affecting contemporary society.
