Course Summary

This programme offers an advanced understanding of the contemporary world, drawing on insights from International Relations as well as European Studies, Comparative Politics and Regional Studies. You'll explore in depth key theories, issues and controversies, and have the opportunity to pursue interdisciplinary studies and develop your interests in a vibrant and intellectually stimulating community. You'll also have access to the University's Europa Institute established in 1968 to specialise in the law and politics of the European Union; its library is considered one of the best of its kind. Finally, there is also a vibrant community of students interested in international and European Politics, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to network with your peers, organise events and even work on publications in the Leviathan - the University's own journal of Politics and International Relations.

While many graduates of this programme have gone on to further studies and academic careers, many have taken up positions in a wide range of institutions and companies. These include NATO and the United Nations, the European Commission and Parliament, regional and national government institutions, development organisations, educational, research and think-tank organisations, banking, media, lobbying, and commercial organisations. The transferable skills you gain in areas such as communication and research will give you an edge in the employment market, whatever your eventual career.
