Posted on 02/06/2008

Are you interested in the extraordinary changes that are taking place in today’s world? Do you want to know more about global geopolitics and the changing geographies of international conflict? Are you concerned about questions of global development and the changing patterns of economic, social, political and environmental inequality? Or the ways in which the internet and new information technologies are transforming our ways of communicating – and of doing politics?

This new joint degree programme will allow you to study some of the most compelling global issues of the day and provide you with the critical tools necessary to understand these transformations from a variety of perspectives.

Combining courses from Politics, International Relations and Geography, the degree develops both foundational skills and specific knowledge, allowing you to pursue your particular area of interest in the second and third years within one of five possible ‘pathways’ of specialisation:
