Introduction

This course provides aspiring politicians, diplomats, civil servants and business leaders with an academic grounding in the key principles of Politics and International Relations, including political theory, international politics, comparative politics and globalisation. This grounding is invaluable for students wishing to study Politics and International Relations at a top university and those seeking a potential career in government, whilst also being accessible for those with a general interest in this diverse field.

The Project

The Project focuses on the production of an extended piece of writing that the student must research and produce independently under the guidance of our tutors. Typically this consists of a thesis on a specific topic within Politics and International Relations that the student chooses, often an area of debate or something featuring heavily in the news, although there is scope for producing something other than a thesis. The emphasis of the course is not only on developing a deeper understanding of your chosen subject area, but also in training broader skills in research, communication, analysis and independent study. Some sample thesis topics include:

  • New Superpowers in a Changing World and the Future of the West
  • Brexit: the Consequences of Britain Leaving the EU
  • The New, Not-So-Cold, War With Russia
  • The Politics of Climate Change: Seeking Sustainability in a Divided World

Other possibilities beyond the production of a thesis include:

  • The creation of a ‘beginner’s guide’ to Politics and International Relations for beginner students.
