Why study International Relations?

The major in international relations will give students in-depth understanding of the nature and exercise of power in world politics; the origins, constitution and development of the international system; how ideas shape order, justice and security; Australia's role in global affairs, the interplay between domestic, international and transnational politics, and a diverse range of state and non-state actors. It will provide students with in-depth knowledge of core issues in world politics, and different theoretical approaches and conceptual frameworks for understanding world politics. Graduates of this major will be able to apply theories of, and concepts in, international relations to make sense of world politics, problem-solve in complex political terrains, critically analyse and synthesise information to provide guidance in foreign policy, think strategically and ethically about national interests, communicate effectively, apply their knowledge to a rapidly shifting global landscape, and translate learning into policy, engagement and impact. Graduates of this major will be global citizens, intellectually open and flexible, aware of and sensitive to cultural difference, and motivated to make positive change through global engagement.
