About

The International Relations and History programme from London School of Economics and Political Science is aimed at students who wish to complement the in-depth understanding of the complex unfolding of historical events with a theoretical perspective on how international society is organised. 

Overview

This is a joint honours International Relations and History programme from London School of Economics and Political Science, with equal emphasis in each subject area.

International relations deals with the nature of the changing relations between states and with non-state actors. It studies the functioning of the international system – the forces, factors and interests, the customs, rules, norms, institutions and organisations from which the theory and history of its development are formed.

History is a wide ranging and challenging subject to study. It seeks to understand the past and to make sense of the present, adding an important dimension to the understanding of many aspects of human society.
