International Relations

Choose from a range of International Relations degrees including undergraduate, Masters and PhD courses.

How is humanity organised at the world level, and where does power lie? What are the key ideas people use to try and understand issues such as war and peace, and wealth and poverty? And how can we use these ideas to address the urgent challenges facing the world today? At Sussex, we pioneer new critical approaches to these questions.

We are one of the largest dedicated International Relations departments in the world with a wide range of expertise. And you have plenty of choice in how you shape your degree.
