Advanced Studies in International Relations

This course is designed to integrate students’ knowledge of current events into their historic context and situate this understanding of global affairs within a body of international relations theory. Through the study of international organizations, students develop their analyses of events with the realities of how these events are perceived, reacted to, and addressed in the international arena. Using research, papers and presentations, debate, simulations, analysis of news sources and global media, and international relations theory, this course challenges students to step outside themselves and understand the difficult decisions world leaders make while forging their ideas about how to build a better world.

Prerequisite: Open to students in fifth and sixth form with departmental approval
