Politics (and Economics) or International Relations (and Economics)? watch

    • Thread Starter

    So I'm definitely doing one or the other right, I just don't know which would be better? Like I like the idea of politics because it's more learning skills and theories it seems, while IR is like comparing situations and stuff (though I might be totally wrong in that interpretation lol). I mean, I've been really into like MUN and stuff for ages, so feel like an IR based field would be good for me, but politics at a national and local level is also super interesting. Please help?

    I think you need to look at individual courses at different universities since there are variations between courses too. E.g. Econ IR might have some good politics core modules, or Econ Pol could give you some good IR modules.

    If all else, fails, why not go for "all of the above"? Warwick and RHUL are among institutions that offer Economics, Politics and International Studies/Relations.
