Help: Is International Relations the right degree for me???Watch
I am thinking of studying International Relations at uni, as I am really interested in global issues and love studying human geography at A level. I think the course looks really good, however, I am just wondering whether it is really political? I don't know much about politics, so I'm a bit worried that it isn't the right course for me?
I am more interested in e.g. the impacts of conflict on people, and don't really know if an International Relations degree will be what I expect it to be like?
Any advice would be highly appreciated! Thank you
I've applied to IR this year. IR is a branch of politics, so yes there's a lot of political content. If you enjoy learning about the relationships between countries (why they go to war with each other, different political theory, realism, liberalism etc.) then go for it! I take geography, politics and sociology for A-Levels and human geography definitely ties in a lot with IR.
