Subjects

International relations

Politics

NCH offers a programme for students looking to pursue a degree in Politics and International Relations in London designed around both theoretical and practical application of each. The study of Politics comprises political theory, examining normative questions, and the political science of how government is organized. Likewise, the study of International Relations looks at governance, institution-building, and decision-making through an analysis of historical phenomena, economic conditions, diplomatic relations, security, and socio-cultural factors.

The Politics & IR with Art History BSc will provide you with knowledge of the kinds of institutions people live under, and how artists and culture have responded to those institutions. You’ll compare the political institutions of different countries, analysing from where they derive their legitimacy and how they interact with other organisations. You’ll take a course in political theory, questioning not only how these institutions work, but also how thinkers have theorised they ought to work. At the same time, you’ll take survey courses in the culture of these countries, from Europe to China, over different historical periods, as well as studying more media-specific courses focusing on paintings, architecture, and so on.
