This programme provides students with the opportunity to combine the study of political science with the study of international relations and focuses on the way in which political power is distributed and structured within one state and among many different states. International relations focus on the behaviour of individual states and the relationships amongst them, as well as on some of the important issues of the international community, such as the root causes of war and the conditions guaranteeing peace. The programme also analyses international economic relations and issues, such as the benefits and disadvantages of globalisation, and international institutions, such as the United Nations and the European Union.
