This course is ideal for those looking to gain an understanding of international systems and processes – economics, international political systems and international law – with a focus on understanding issues such as human rights and development using different international legal, political, and economic perspectives. A special focus on understanding the impact on gender and development will emerge in the final year of the course.

Programa

What will you study?
The first year of the programme provides grounding in the four essential disciplines of the course and their overlapping concerns at the international level. In year two, three core modules sharpen the focus on the international development agenda, with students expected to undertake a placement as their fourth module. The final year involves a more practical and applied approach.

Year One:

POI1001 Introduction to Politics introduces notions of democracy, civil society and the role of the state and has a focus on ideologies such as socialism, liberalism and feminism. The importance of globalisation in terms of these issues is also raised.

ECS1350 Principles of Economics introduces students to macroeconomic principles and tools of analysis, as well as how problems such as unemployment and inflation affect macroeconomic performance, complemented by understanding of markets through supply and demand.

DEV1001 The Construction of the Third World view critically the notion of 'third world' and its representation in the context of global development, particularly through the practical lens of the 'millenium development goals' and with an eye to the gender dimension in development.

LAW1101 Introduction to Law combines theory with practical skills, providing an introduction to contract and other law, and helping develop students' practical legal skills.

Year Two:

ECS2335 Economic Policy Evaluation

LAW2465 UK and European Human Rights Law

POI2001 Theories of International Relations

Students are also expected to undertake a placement module as their year two option, but if that is not possible it may be deferred to the final year and replaced in year two by one of a range of optional modules.

Year Three:

DEV3001 Development Policy Seminars focuses on student led project presentation

Students are also required to select TWO modules from:

LAW3181 Public International Law: aims to give students a knowledge and understanding of the principles of public international law in order to enable students to extend their ability to evaluate and analyse legal issues in the international context, often dealing with topical concerns. This might include debates over the legality of the use of armed force, the protection of the environment, or the extent of individual responsibility for war crimes.

POI3353 Globalism: An Introduction to Political Economy builds student understanding of particular approaches to global development that place the political context of economic development at the forefront.

ECS3070 International Trade: provides a mainstream economic perspective on trade to contrast with the development focus of the final year.
