International Relations and History BA with Year Abroad
International relations are the product of historical change which means that in order to understand one, you must consider the other. The International Relations and History BA offers you the opportunity to explore the ways in which these two fascinating topics are linked.
You will learn about the methods and fundamentals of political and historical inquiry, as well as how to analyse complex issues and reach reasoned conclusions, to present coherent arguments in written and oral form, to engage in independent research and work effectively as a member of a team. These are all skills which are highly valued by employers.
You will be able to study the most vital issues affecting the modern world and understand their historical backgrounds - from the world's foremost powers (the United States, the EU, Russia and China) to smaller nations that are impacted by their behaviour.
You will be able to examine the workings and the health of the political system in Britain and other states. You will also explore some of the most important and interesting issues in national and international politics:
Who holds power and why?
Is there a crisis of political participation?
What are the appropriate limits to individual liberty?
Is globalisation a positive or negative process?
When is war just?
How can conflicts be resolved in divided societies?
Can established modes of politics tackle environmental challenges?
This degree is very flexible as you will have the opportunity to choose the majority of your modules in your second and third years, allowing you to delve deeper into the areas of history and international relations that fascinate you the most.
