Course summary

Studying an International Relations degree allows you to explore a range of complex and profoundly important dynamics, such as those between globalisation and human rights, international and regional politics, and peace and conflict. Alongside this you will undertake a deep study of Spanish language, culture and fiction. During a year in Spain, you will either study at a university, teach in a school or work in a business.Graduates with a strong understanding of international relations are critical to all our futures. Our four-year degree helps to provide a wealth of inspiring career opportunities thanks to numerous transferable skills which are highly valued by employers.International Relations at Swansea is ranked in the Top-10 for teaching experience (Times and Sunday Times 2018), Top-20 in the Guardian University Guide 2018 and Top-20 for career prospects (Guardian University Guide 2018). Some 91% of graduates from this subject area are employed or in further study 6 months after graduating (Destination of Leavers from HE survey 2015) and 74% of our students achieved a 1st class or 2.1 honours degree in 2017/18.Your early studies will concentrate on war and peace in the nuclear age, and how politics and international relations are defined, together with Spanish language and culture. But whether your true passion lies in American politics and society, ethics and justice or the unique cultural environment of Barcelona, our range of first year modules has it covered. This range enables you to discover, learn and narrow your individual interests in later study.As one of a select few UK universities, Swansea offers prestigious modules in British Parliamentary Studies. Teaching is delivered by specialist academic staff and members of parliament, and you can visit the House of Commons in London.Based on our stunning Singleton Park campus overlooking Swansea Bay on the edge of the Gower Peninsula, you will have the ability to tailor your degree according to your specific interests as you progress."I thoroughly enjoyed my year abroad and cannot emphasise enough the benefits to be gained. Studying a foreign language opens the door to a whole world of new possibilities, and their value in the jobs market shouldn't be underestimated." – Sophie Williams.The year abroad will enrich your student experience and boost your career prospects. Later studies are shaped by modules around your specific interests and a substantial dissertation project, while a number of work placement programmes are available to help you prepare for graduate life.Students typically develop oral and writing skills through presenting ideas in different formats, supported by strong research and rigorous analysis. Assessment is conducted through essays, coursework, examination, presentations and a dissertation.Teaching is informed by a vibrant and supportive research environment that unites academics, postgraduates and visiting scholars around shared subject matter.Graduates of International Relations and Spanish have truly international potential and gain employment around the world. They have careers in education, government and politics, humanitarian organisations, media and public relations, and law and public services.Please visit our course page for more information: swansea.ac.uk/undergraduate/courses/artsandhumanities/politics-and-international-relations/ba-irspanish-l2r4/**We guarantee that you will be made a conditional offer for a course at Swansea University.
