Course summary

International Relations examines the driving forces behind international cooperation and conflict and explores security and prosperity in the international system. We have expertise in several regional topics within world politics, such as US foreign policy, the Middle East and Africa. You will gain an in-depth understanding of:

  • the changing nature of state power
  • the role of non-state actors
  • the spread of new norms and ideas
  • the driving forces behind international cooperation and conflict
Quantitative methods One quarter of your study time will be devoted to quantitative methods. You will learn how to research international relations issues by using data in a practical setting. This programme will develop your skills in international relations and statistics. Quantitative skills underpin effective evidence-based planning in government, in the private sector and in international non-governmental organisations, so your combined skills set will be in demand. Internship opportunities There will be an opportunity to undertake an internship, allowing you to gain practical experience and further strengthen your skills. Our placement hosts include prestigious institutions such as the Scottish Government, NHS Scotland and private-sector employers. Q-Step support and funding This programme receives support and funding from the UK-wide Q-Step initiative, allowing you to benefit from small class sizes and develop your skills in close proximity to experts. There is also plenty of support available to help those less confident with maths.
