International Relations with German at University of Birmingham - UCAS

Course summary

Our diverse programme allows you to combine the study of German with International Relations. In a world of growing interdependence, the need for a wider understanding of international affairs becomes more crucial every day. Our International Relations with German BA allows you to combine study of a modern language with international relations, which is itself interdisciplinary and covers such topics as politics, economics and the diplomatic history of the 20th century. The third year is spent studying at a European university. You will spend one third of your time in language studies and two thirds taking courses in international relations. When you return to Birmingham for your fourth year, you will study advanced courses in your language and in international affairs.
