Program description

Studying politics, you will explore the origins and present-day contexts of domestic and international conflicts about power and resources. You will also study the morality of political action, the limits of freedom and justice, and the processes of governance at various levels. On this programme, you will look at the origins and evolution of the state system and the changing nature of state power. You will also learn about the driving forces behind international cooperation and conflict and you will explore security and prosperity in the international system. One quarter of your study time will be devoted to quantitative methods. You will learn how to research international relations issues by using data in a practical setting. This programme will develop your skills in international relations and statistics. Quantitative skills underpin effective evidence-based planning in government, in the private sector and in international non-governmental organisations, so your combined skills set will be in demand. This programme offers you the opportunity to take an internship, allowing you to gain practical experience and further strengthen your skills. Our placement hosts include prestigious institutions such as the Scottish Government, NHS Scotland and private sector employers. This programme receives support and funding from the UK-wide Q-Step initiative, allowing you to benefit from small class sizes and develop your skills in close proximity to experts. There is also plenty of support available to help those less confident with maths.
