About the course
American political issues, the Holocaust, democracy, globalisation, the Arab-Israeli conflict – these are only some of the political aspects and key events you will be able to explore in detail as part of the course.
As well as providing a foundation in the approaches to, and theories of, politics and international relations, the programme will develop your understanding of the importance of politics in a globalising and integrating world.
This degree is designed to enable you to study international affairs in their political and historical contexts.
You will address critical political questions, such as:
- Who has political power?
- Why do they have it?
- To whom are they accountable?
- In whose interest do they exercise it?
- What is globalisation?
- Is violent protest ever justified?
