Are you fascinated by how global affairs can shape society? Do you want to have informed opinions on pressing political issues and use them to make sense of our uncertain world?

When you study our International Relations and Politics degree, you’re joining a vibrant, exciting community that investigates current debates and challenges like:

  • nationalism and populism
  • world poverty and global trade justice
  • security, terrorism and peacebuilding
  • climate change, global development and migration
  • gender equality and racial justice.

You’ll learn to apply structure and organisation to a planet that’s constantly in flux. And you’ll be in a place with others who’re socially, politically, and environmentally conscious and driven.
