Students can explore British Politics, international diplomacy and the emergence of global institutions. Through the study the national, comparative, international and global politics, students have the opportunity to develop an appreciation of the key themes driving contemporary International Relations and Politics. The programme is designed to develop an understanding of the influence of different political cultures and traditions on outcomes.

Our academics offer a thorough grounding in British and global politics and support students to develop vital analytical, evaluative and critical-thinking skills.
In the first year of the degree, core modules introduce British government and politics and international relations. Students can begin to examine the key concepts which underpin both disciplines. In the second and third years, there are opportunities to develop in-depth knowledge of both subjects through core modules on topics including British political parties, politics and international relations theory and global governance. The core Model United Nations module gives students the opportunity to learn about international diplomacy and to practise negotiating skills in a simulated general assembly.
