International Relations

Generally, international relations introduces students to world politics and the social-historical impact of global development.
Students will often learn about the different political systems and governing policies around the world, understanding how they connect with a broad range of international issues.

When you’re searching for this programme around the world, you should keep in mind that universities structure their international relations programmes differently. You may first try searching any variation of ‘international relations’, ‘international affairs’, ‘international politics’, or ‘international studies’ to yield the most results.
