The course examines a wide range of issues of contemporary relevance in global politics. More than any other, the contemporary era has thrust many of the core and emerging issues of international relations directly into our everyday lives, requiring us to reflect on them systematically. Taking the exciting and troubling times in which we live as its starting point, this course emphasises a philosophical and historical orientation with a distinctive critical edge for which international relations at Sussex has an international reputation. This course brings together students from a wide range of educational, national, political and professional backgrounds. It is a theoretically grounded course, covering issues of theory and history of international relations, as well as a wide range of issues of contemporary relevance in global politics and international order. Our Centre for Advanced International Theory provides a unique forum for advanced fundamental research in international politics. The School of Global Studies offers you support in finding a research placement, allowing you to gain experience in an area of work relating to your subject of study and to acquire practical skills in preparation for a professional career.
