International relations and the policies they shape are rarely far from the media headlines, tackling challenging and sometimes controversial issues from human rights and poverty, to social exclusion and national security.
Studying these two interdisciplinary subjects together provides students with the opportunity to develop an understanding of the way in which the national concerns of a country feed into its social policy agenda.
Teaching on this (Hons) International Relations and Social Policy programme at University of Lincoln is informed by the research expertise of academic staff from the School of Social and Political Sciences. These staff contribute to national policy debates and are engaged in research across a range of specialisms, including the politics of welfare, gender and sexuality, the international political economy, war crimes, and genocide, the politics of global health, migration, British politics, UK social policy, and political theory and security.
