Program description

International Relations With Languages BA (Full-time)

Why study this course?

This topical degree course allows you to specialise in two disciplines, providing you with a greater career choice and a range of highly transferable skills. Working with academics who are specialists in their field, you’ll examine the issues surrounding the international community today. This includes terrorism, the environment, international aid, nuclear proliferation, human rights, cyberwarfare and the complex relationships between states. Learn one of the world’s leading languages while engaging with politics and culture.

The International Relations with Languages BA (Hons) degree is taught by specialists in international relations, politics, and Arabic, French or Spanish, many of whom are internationally recognised for the quality of their work.

The degree will provide you with a broad perspective on the political, economical and historical aspects of international relations, and will enhance your ability to understand the complex forces shaping modern global politics. The added bonus of learning more than one language (Arabic, French and Spanish) integrated into the degree opens up the possibility to pursue work in the global market. There are no prerequisites for languages, and you'll start at whatever level is appropriate after taking a language level assessment with the Open Language Program (OLP) staff.

A number of practitioners will be invited from the government and non-governmental organisations to speak on a variety of modules, concentrating on subject specific knowledge and employability.

Employability is central to every module, and in the final year you’ll have the opportunity to do a work-related learning module. This has previously included placements with a wide range of institutions, such as the United Nations, aid agencies, think tanks and embassies. You can even opt to do your work placement in the UK or another country.

A study-abroad semester can be undertaken as part of the degree Program . We have Socrates exchange links with a number of European Universities including Bologna, Bordeaux, Istanbul, Madrid and Stockholm. It’s also possible to study in the United States, where the University has exchange links with a number of universities, such as the State University of New York, City University New York, East Carolina, Roosevelt University (Chicago) and a number of colleges in the University of California state system.
