Program Information

School:University of East Anglia
Faculty:Arts and Humanities / Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies
Field of Study:International Relations and Affairs
Description:Why do wars break out? Can peace ever be permanent? How do we solve collective problems like environmental destruction, international terrorism, or disease pandemics? How do states, companies, groups and individuals interact across borders; and what causes conflict and – sometimes! – co-operation between them? These are the sorts of questions you will explore on this degree. You will also learn how international organisations like the United Nations work; how the global political economy functions – and who benefits from it; and what role political, religious and moral ideas play in international relations. You will explore a range of contemporary issues – from migration to nuclear weapons to human rights to poverty – through a variety of global case studies from Latin America to Africa to Europe to the United States to the Asia Pacific region, and beyond.

The course begins with an overview of the key questions and debates within the discipline of international relations. You will explore different ways of thinking about the world – what does it mean to study global politics as a liberal, or a feminist, or a Marxist, for instance – and different understandings of key issues within global politics, from war, conflict and security through to issues around development, the environment, famine and identity. As you progress in your degree, you will be encouraged to specialise in your studies by taking modules that focus on more specific topics or regions of the world. This allows you to help shape your expertise around those things about which you are really passionate. You’ll cultivate the skills and knowledge needed for a sophisticated understanding of how the world works. You will also become increasingly independent in your learning, with possibilities including writing a dissertation on a topic you have chosen and undertaking placements or internships within your studies.
