Department of Modern History, Politics and International Relations - Politics and International Relations
Welcome to Politics and International Relations
The study of politics is concerned with the nature of power and related issues of justice and injustice. The discipline has conventionally been divided into the study of politics within states (often referred to as political science), and the study of politics in the international sphere (conventionally referred to as International Relations or IR). This distinction, however, is a fairly artificial one and tends to mask the very complex pattern of interactions between the two spheres.
The units offered in Politics and International Relations generally take account of such complexities while providing focused units on a range of topics and issues in both branches of the discipline. Politics and International Relations combines well with broader humanities and social science programs such as history, philosophy, sociology, communications, economics and law and is a useful addition to a business studies program.
