International Relations and Development looks at how politics, economics and law are interconnected throughout the world, analysing the foreign policies of countries and states, and explores the challenges facing developing and developed countries in the fight against global poverty.
On this International Relations and Development (Hons) degree at University of Birmingham , you will gain the all-round skills needed for a modern working world, such as critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and creativity.
Globally, a huge range of organisations are working for inclusive development, opening up a variety of opportunities to pursue a career in the sector. This includes international agencies such as the United Nations, national aid agencies like the UK’s Department for International Development, and local civil society organisations operating all over the world.
Our degrees are carefully designed to provide the knowledge and skills these kinds of employers value - from critical thinking and problem-solving, to practical experience of frameworks for designing, monitoring and evaluating development. While our degrees are tailored for a career in development, these skills are also highly transferable to a range of government or non-governmental sectors.
