Course Introduction

This dynamic course examines the major issues in politics today and the problems that face the international community. We encourage you to pursue your own areas of interest in fields such as international aid, the EU, Chinese and Asian politics, African politics, or American foreign policy. We focus on employability and many of our students undertake placements with INGOs; MPs; local, regional and national governments; international businesses; the United Nations; and Amnesty International. You will also have the opportunity to study abroad at one of our partner universities including colleges in the University of California state system.
