University of Sheffield
This new course will help you focus critical theoretical debates, explore the real world in all its complexity and study innovative modules that examine the most urgent issues in world politics and international relations. You'll deepen your understanding of mainstream approaches and learn about new analytical insights such as the sociological understandings of international relations, critical security studies, non-Western international relations, and intersectionality. As part of your studies you'll consider both the formal and informal power relationships within global politics, while building an awareness of the importance of cultural and social practices. You'll develop an ability to question some of the assumptions that have traditionally defined the discipline to the exclusion of important issues such as gender, race and class.
