International Studies offers an interdisciplinary approach to the world’s most pressing challenges. Students master a range of skills—research, writing, critical thinking—while analysing issues as varied as globalisation, migration, social justice, climate change, urbanisation, and disaster response. All our units are inherently global and comparative in the case studies they select, training students to think critically across cultural and geographical boundaries. Students learn interpretive methods and theories by leading economists, historians, anthropologists, philosophers, bioethicists, sociologists and political scientists, giving them a unique blend of analytical skills that study in one discipline alone cannot offer. Our students go on to careers in civil service, non-governmental organisations, internal aid and development, and an array of other fields.
