Program Description

On the bachelor in Politics and International Relations (BA), you’ll study the practical and theoretical aspects of modern politics and international relations, and thereby gain insights into our past, present, and future on both a local and global scale. You’ll examine relevant political debates from a historical, philosophical, and sociological perspective.

In doing so, we‘ll go beyond the ‘high politics’ of traditional theories and the workings of parliaments. Instead, you’ll be able to develop your own specialisms in areas such as global diplomacy, international relations, and international issues like climate change; protest movements like Black Lives Matter; the devolution of power away from central government; the politics of the new media; the politics of gender, and the place of race in modern society.
