This course is subject to a review which may mean a change to the units of study. Overview These courses give you the opportunity to study International Relations in combination with a language. You will undertake practical language classes for your minor language, while also developing an understanding of the social and cultural environment in which the language is spoken. In the study of politics, historical background, socioeconomic indicators and ideological imperatives are analysed and cultural, gender and ethnic identities are examined. You can study UK politics, political thought and International Relations theory, European politics, international politics and security, 'issue' politics (for example, environmentalism or war and peace) and comparative politics. Proficiency in modern languages will give you the competitive edge in the global jobs market. In both the private and public sectors, there is demand for professionals with strong language skills who can work in culturally diverse environments. Minor languages available: French, Spanish, Modern Standard Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, German, Italian and Japanese. This course has a Foundation Year available. Features and Benefits
