BA(Hons) Politics and International Relations allows you to study both subjects equally or specialise in aspects of either programme. Looking at everything from how popular movements, cultures and great thinkers view conflicts, to the EU, terrorism and the abuse of human rights, you’ll benefit from the support of our inspirational staff and interactive teaching. The course is designed to give you a strong balance of academic knowledge and the practical skills employers seek. Hone your skills on interesting work placements in years two and three. Study in Europe or the USA as part of your degree, and gain valuable extra experience by volunteering with one of our industry contacts. Go on field trips to places such as the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to see modern politics in action. Attend our fortnightly student-staff events where guest speakers discuss contemporary issues and explain the role of politics in different professions. We also hold regular research events where you can debate contemporary political issues, and test out and strengthen your professional skills. Politics and international relations graduates are in demand across many professions. They find jobs in government, the civil service, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), accountancy, human resources, media and journalism. You could also get involved in research or education, or specialise further with postgraduate study.
