Overview

The International Relations degree at DMU helps you to develop an in-depth understanding of the underlying forces that shape global decisions. You will study the crucial issues in contemporary international politics: the rise of new powers such as China and India, the crisis in Syria, the challenges of resolving the Eurozone crisis, the problems of facing terrorism and the persistence of poverty and inequality in the global south.

You can combine International Relations with a foreign language, from beginners to post-GCSE level. At a time when the graduate employment market is very competitive, having a recognised competence in a foreign language can set you apart from most other graduates and enhance your career prospects.

You will take a 30 credit beginners’ or post-GSCE module in your chosen language (which will equate to two hours of language classes) and one hour of cultural studies per week, learning about the country and its people. You will also have the opportunity to put your skills into practice by studying abroad between years two and three.
