The International Politics degrees at City help students find answers to the many questions about our changing world. We are a growing community of students and academics dedicated to exploring power, global transformations and new challenges in the 21st century. Our expert staff are at the leading edge of contemporary debates concerning international diplomacy, finance, civil society, security, religion, migration and many other public policy issues across all continents. We also engage in theoretical debate on global politics in today's world. Graduates' skills are of relevance to all needing to know how their organisations fit into the world: governments and intergovernmental organisations, international nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) and multinational companies. International Politics students can undertake work placements between the second and third years of their degree. Advice is provided in the first term of the second year to students interested in taking up this option. The degree title then awarded is BSc (Hons) International Politics or International Politics and Sociology 'with Integrated Professional Training'.
