Course Summary

Course Summary

The course will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the forces shaping global politics and state and inter-state relations. It will also give you an appreciation of the context of international relations in terms of global inequalities, power and environmental risks. Our students come to us from all over the world, so you will be working in an international environment. The course will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need for a career working in a global body, government department or organisation dealing with international policy. You will also be encouraged to improve your research skills and learn how to take an active part in international and academic conferences and debates.

This course offers a unique combination of critical thinking in relation to international relations and the study of global environmental politics. We were the first university to offer this special focus on the environment, which has become a central issue of global relations.

Your Future Career

Some of our students have already worked in an international relations environment while others are looking to start a career in the area. Many aspire to work for the United Nations or to develop a career in international policy or development at a government level. Some have used the skills they have developed on the course to forge careers in local as well as national government. Our course will give you the advanced skills to take your career to a new level. You will also learn how to work in an international environment and how to influence the debate. Throughout the course you will have the expertise of our distinguished academic team to guide you. Course Leader Dr Erika Cudworth has published on environmental, social and political theory and environmental social movements.
