The Political Science and International Relations Department engages students in the study of how people govern themselves—from the smallest communities to the international system. In the town meeting, the halls of Congress or the United Nations, the great political questions are the same—how to reconcile individual aspirations and community needs, freedom and equality, authority and justice, participation and power.
The department offers students a major in Political Science and another one in International Relations. We also offer minors in Political Science, International Relations and Law Justice and Society.
The BSc (Hons) in Political Sciences and International Relations enables you to obtain the skills and knowledge
- Provides a thorough grounding for the understanding and analysis of international relations.
- Enables students to understand contemporary international relations and the forces that are reshaping global politics in the 21st century.
- Develops students' knowledge of the foreign and security policies of the major actors in world politics, including the key states such as the USA, and the principal institutions such as the UN and the World Trade Organization.
- Offers students the opportunity to study specific global issues (e.g., arms control and security governance, migration, development) and regions (from Europe to Latin America) in depth.
