Course description: Societies can only continue to exist if they solve the problem of internal order and are able to protect themselves from external threats. The Political Science and International Relations course focuses on how societies govern themselves and the collective decisions or public policies they need or choose, to make.

This course explores the ways in which states and peoples interact with other states, regional or global political organisations, and social movements in an increasingly interdependent world. Attention is given to the different ways government is organised; values such as liberty, participation, majority rule and minority rights which inform political institutions and public policy; and ideologies such as conservatism, liberalism, socialism, feminism and environmentalism.

In short, this degree covers all aspects of political, cultural and economic relations at both the domestic and international levels. It explores the world-shaping political forces that extend far beyond national boundaries and impact our lives in unexpected ways. At the core of the degree are specialist units dealing with contemporary real-world problem-solving, both in teams and individually

 

Where can I work with a Degree in Political Science and International Relations 
Graduates are not only found in political parties, ministers’ offices and parliament, but many may also pursue careers in Current affairs journalist, government and public service administrator, nongovernment or private sector administrator, policy researcher and consultant, political adviser, think tank participant. The degree will equip you to pursue a wide range of careers where knowledge of the interactions between international and domestic politics is necessary.
