The degree in International Politics with Economics (L2L1) explores who gets what on a global scale, how they get it, and why. Students will discuss power and justice as well as conflict and co-operation. International Politics is fundamentally an interdisciplinary subject that draws on several subjects, including Economics, Politics, History, Philosophy, Law, Geography and Sociology. The Department operates a prestigious Parliamentary Placement scheme, enabling students to gain valuable experience working alongside an MP (House of Commons, Westminster) or an AM (Welsh Assembly, Cardiff) for a period of 4-6 weeks during the summer. During this time students will write reports and speeches, undertake research projects, and respond to constituency issues. There may be further opportunities for students to get involved in elections and various international issues. The Department is also home to Interstate, the oldest student-run international politics journal in the United Kingdom, providing a unique opportunity for students to publish their work or gain valuable experience working as part of the editorial team.
