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.
