Program description

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both International Relations and Politics. Politics is of vital importance to all of us in our daily lives. It concerns
fundamental choices about the ways in which societies are organised and
the way we are governed, both within nations and in the global community. With high rates of employability and student satisfaction, International
Relations and Politics at Keele is an ideal programme for those who seek
to better understand the world we live in.

Events in the world today are driven by forces both within countries and
across them. Whether you want to understand the crisis in the Middle
East or climate change, you need to understand both the internal politics
of the countries involved as well as how different groups interact across
borders. That is why a degree in International Relations and Politics at
Keele will equip you with the necessary tools to understand and explain
how power operates and how we might begin to tackle these issues.

will study contemporary and policy relevant issues such as democracy,
global inequality, protest, globalisation, regime change, energy security,
environmental sustainability, human rights and gender politics. You can
underpin these issues through an in-depth study of particular countries
such as Britain, the United States of America and Russia as well as
regions in Europe, Eurasia, Africa and the Middle East. Learning from the
experts at Keele means you will be taught by researchers in the fields of
International Relations and Politics doing cutting edge research in key
issues relevant to your studies and working experience.

As an International Relations and Politics graduate, there will be many
career possibilities available to you, both inside and outside the national
and international world of politics. Our graduates are to be found in a
wide range of jobs from commerce to industry as well as the civil service,
journalism, law, security services, political research, diplomacy and
teaching. Some of our well-known graduates include Laurence Mann,
the political private secretary to David Cameron, Jonty Bloom, Business
correspondent for the BBC, Farah Faisal, High Commissioner for the
Maldives and Paul Rimmer, Director at the Ministry of Defence.
