International Relations deals with issues like sovereignty, environmentalism, development and human rights in the context of global affairs and is also concerned with the policies of individual states. The subject will show you how the world works and how power structures are made, unmade, exploited and resisted. It is therefore an excellent preparation for a career in civil service, politics and diplomacy.
International Relations modules will include political analysis, global histories, war and security in politics, social divisions and global governance.
Roles in research, journalism, social policy or development and different branches of politics are popular avenues for graduates in International Relations to pursue. Careers in civil services, politics and international diplomacy, requiring skills to understand global events' complex nature and impact, are suitable for International Relations Graduates.
