- MIUC Awarded Degree: Bachelor in Political Science - International Relations
Contemporary International Relations operates in a rapidly changing global environment that is going through major transformations. These transformations have resulted in different challenges, such as global inequality, democratic deficit, environmental degradation, or a transforming nature of conflict. This requires us to critically approach the study of international relations through discussing the applicability of traditional theoretical approaches and institutional processes in a rapidly transforming world.
In this programme, you will gain an extensive knowledge of the international system, as well as intellectual and creative skills to understand the relationships between states, inter-governmental organisations, and non-state actors.
BA International Relations will make you ready for a career in global politics as you will develop important theoretical and analytical skills necessary to analyse key contemporary issues such as peace and conflict, human rights, globalisation and economic growth, ecological issues and solutions, activism and much more.
As a student on the course, you will be encouraged to take an active approach to your learning, informing and shaping the direction of your learning journey and future career direction.
