Your programme of study

International Relations and International Law give you a wider access to employment within international development and trade, plus government and political areas.  

If you want to enjoy a career within international relations you may be looking at positions within policy making within government and the civil service within foreign affairs. You can also go into the defence area, development and human rights. A lot of graduates choose to go into advocacy, research and project management from this degree working for NGOs. Some others follow careers in regional and global institutions such as the EU or UN and others go into the armed forces or international media working as journalists and reporters. Other careers our graduates have followed have been in international risk management and international corporations in trade and finance. The postgraduate degree can make a real difference in terms of having a postgraduate qualification to allow you to continue on your career path or change careers.

The programme gives you engagement with key issues in contemporary International Relations including development and political economy, critical and human security, gender, identity and human rights and more. You learn the debates about globalisation, international institutions, international development and global political economy. This includes culture and identity, citizenship and stabilisation of power. The programme gives you an interdisciplinary perspective on global governance and law including areas such as; technology, economics, history, geography, sociology, criminology, diplomacy, international security, finance, human rights and more. Additional modules within international law mean you have a great range of knowledge and employment options in an advisory role.
