Program overview

Combining the approaches and theories of International Relations with studies of modern and contemporary history, this course provides you with insight into understanding the rapidly changing world around us. Wars, revolutions, the global economy, Brexit, climate change, society, migration and power all come together as themes in this carefully designed, immersive and overlapping programme of study. The International Relations: History and Global Politics award aims to develop your understanding of world events and global trends, knowledge of which will undoubtedly become increasingly essential in a less predictable world including a post Brexit Britain. The course focusses on the challenges of international relations today as well as providing, through the study of history, examples of the ways through which those challenges have been met in the past. It fosters your all-important problem-solving, communication, research and inquiry skills; providing study activities and assessments that encourage independence of thought, originality, critical self-awareness and advances your future employability prospects.

    Career opportunities

    History graduates find opportunities in local and national government, schools, media and law. Some find employment with charities (at home and overseas), in community advocacy or with NGOs. Many go on to additional study both with us and elsewhere. Often our graduates find that the transferable skills they learn during their time with us can open up opportunities in the private sector within local and international businesses. Though many of our alumni go into history-related work in museums and local heritage sites this programme has been specifically tailored to build students’ awareness of the challenges facing both the UK and the world today and it is hoped that students will find ways to apply what they study after they graduate.
