O que eu aprenderei?

In this course you combine study of International Relations in the Department of Social & Political Science with the study of Geography in the Department of Geography & International Development.At its heart, International Relations explores power in all of its manifestations, how power is constructed, used and to what effect. We offer a rigorous and decolonised curriculum, whereby the world is explored through the values, perspectives and knowledge of all who live within it. The breadth of our offerings allows for the development of student-oriented specialisms. Our staff are research-leaders in their fields, bringing their specialist knowledge from the field directly into the classroom. Subjects covered include: diplomacy; peace-making and peace-building; critical security; foreign policy; international political economy; the politics of climate change and sustainability; gender politics; poverty and inequality; political cultures; global issues in international relations; and humanitarian interventions. Students can choose to specialise in a particular region of the world through specialist research-led modules in Revolutionary Latin America; Africa in the World; European Project. We offer insights into the practical world of peace-making and peace-building through our relationships with the United Nations and our specialist research knowledge. Students are encouraged to take up the opportunity for a 5-week placement either in Chester or abroad. Some students also choose to spend a year abroad too.In Geography, you will gain the knowledge and skills to tackle global priority issues such as climate crisis response, social inequality and rising poverty. You will learn about the dynamic relationships that shape people and place, exploring the pressing issues of our time and gaining insight and understanding that will enable you to influence change and play your part in creating a sustainable future for all.Our Geography course is flexible, so you can choose to develop specialisms in distinctive areas of Human Geography, or to maintain a balance of both Human and Physical Geography content. The breadth of teaching and research interests of Geography academics at Chester means that our courses are research-informed and comprehensive. Subjects covered include Geopolitics, Sustainable Development, Poverty and Health, Technology and the Development of ‘Smart’ Places, Mobilities and Migration, Climate Change, Coastal Processes and Management, River Processes and Flooding, Glaciers and Glaciation, Environmental Pollution, GIS and Remote Sensing, and more. Our proximity to the physical, social and cultural landscapes of North Wales, as well as to the urban and industrial centres of Manchester and Liverpool, enables us to incorporate fieldwork and field-based research throughout our course, allowing you to explore key processes and issues in Human and Physical Geography first-hand. We offer international fieldwork opportunities in New York (Migration) and Barcelona (Urban Change), and you can even choose to complete a year-long study abroad placement.Our modules are designed to ensure that you develop the knowledge, skills, expertise and confidence to be ready to make a difference in a changing world. Wide-ranging and advanced employment-focussed skills are embedded throughout the programme (big data analysis, critical thinking, GIS and Remote Sensing, laboratory analytical methods, environmental monitoring), and we provide an invaluable opportunity for you to build relevant employment and problem-solving experience by working in an external organisation as a part of a full-time five-week work placement.
