International Relations (Taught)

Course summary

Global politics is undergoing fast and increasingly dramatic change. This course offers a thorough analysis of international relations, providing insight into the complexities of global politics from a range of perspectives. Through discussions and debates in class, you'll carry out a detailed examination of international relations – analysing both historic events and current issues in the global political landscape, from power and responsibility to humanitarian and environmental law. You’ll study a wide range of theoretical perspectives across international relations and the social sciences, giving you a unique interdisciplinary basis from which to examine world affairs. You’ll analyse the relationships between countries, institutions, international non-governmental organisations (INGOs) and non-state operators – exploring the internal structures of international institutions (such as the United Nations) and the complexities and processes involved in world affairs, including the importance of international law. The research and analytical skills you develop will be matched by a strong practical focus, using current case studies to illustrate how theory relates to practice – developing new policy strategies and solutions. You’ll be exposed to leading practitioners in politics, human rights, media and academia, who'll provide cutting-edge analysis and bring the subject to life by sharing their direct experiences. Plus, you'll have the chance to join our Model United Nations Conference: taking part in organised debates and panel discussions with over 2500 students from across London. You'll graduate with both a broad and deep understanding of international relations, geopolitics and human rights – prepared for an exciting career in the fast-moving and uncertain world of global politics. Our alumni have successfully launched careers in international organisations and inter-governmental institutions such as the UN and the EU, and have explored policy-making and human rights. Upon graduation, you’ll also receive an exclusive discounted membership to the Royal Institute of International Affairs at Chatham House – enabling you to access prominent meetings, policy discussions and rich academic resources.
