Politics and International Studies BA
In this degree, there is an emphasis on the international dimensions of politics. While political theory provides the core of the degree, you can tailor your course to focus on your main interests within International Studies. You will engage with core questions in political theory and how they apply to situations across the globe. You will confront how power is distributed internationally and evaluate the different ways in which societies organize their political systems. You will explore the ideological roots and gendered and racialized effects of world problems and interrogate the ways in which economic imperatives affect foreign policy. Your studies will investigate how theoretical assumptions underpin political decisions and explore the concrete issues that are faced by individuals, governments and organizations around the world.
