Find out more about the TEF.

Gain an international perspective by exploring how nations interact on the global stage, what happens during conflict, and the challenges faced by states and world organisations trying to preserve peace and security. You will engage with the theory of international relations and diplomacy, examining global inequalities, the rise of the superpower nations and what power looks like at a global level.

Understand how major developments, including the Cold War, the fall of the Berlin Wall, globalisation, changing global power relations and the emergence of new terror threats and social movements have shaped the world.

At the end of your first year, you can choose to pursue a single honours degree and achieve a BA (Hons) International Relations award, or alternatively you can choose to study one of our pathways of specialised modules, and gain a combined degree in one of the following:

  • BA (Hons) International Relations with Global Development

  • BA (Hons) International Relations with Peace Studies

  • BA (Hons) International Relations with Politics

  • BA (Hons) International Relations with Political Economy

  • BA (Hons) International Relations with Human Rights

You will also be able to apply direct to study one of these pathways from your first year.

With BA (Hons) International Relations with Peace Studies, in Years 2 and 3 you will study the modules Theories of Peace, Peace Building and Conflict Resolution, Non-Violent Resistance and also complete a Dissertation.
