The International Relations (Hons) programme of The University of Nottingham Malaysia investigates deeper questions relating to how we understand and conceptualise contemporary global transformations. The programme offers a balance between theory and practice. You will gain a broad understanding ofthe key theories and concepts associated with international relations as well as gaining practical experience of the policy process. Instrumental in this is our flagship module, Policy and Persuasion, which will prepare you to participate actively in many fields of work, including politics, advocacy and business.
Your first year will introduce you to the key analytical approaches used in the study of global politics, drawing on international political events in historical and contemporary settings. Your second year modules will focus on contemporary history, global society, political economy and security and prepare you for your final year dissertation by providing training in research techniques. You may pursue your own independent research project during your third year while taking optional modules based on the research expertise of our staff.
Our degrees will equip you for a career in a variety of fields including aid and non-governmental sectors, finance and international businesses, foreign ministries, international media and journalism, international organisations, localand national government, lobbying and policy advice and think-tanks. The school is building up its alumni network both to keep in contact as well as explore ways of connecting current students with alumni in the world of work after graduation.
