COURSE OVERVIEW

International studies is an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the world that provides students with an opportunity to explore the emergence of global society, ofnew identities and politics, and culture as a major factor of international life. While recognising global diversity, international studies with an Asian focus allows students todraw connections between the increasing globalisation of life and how these work out in an Asian context, including work, business, cultural transactions and politics. Coretopics include: globalisation, the nature of development in different regions, identity politics, gender, comparative politics, and mobility.

In your first year of study you will focus on modern Asian history, approaches to understanding international relations, and take introductory modules on politics and culture. Inyour second year of study modules cover the international relations of the Asia Pacific, global media and Southeast Asia. In your final year you focus on studies of nationalism,international organisations and have the option of taking a study tour. Teaching will be by a combination of lectures, role plays, field trips, problem solving exercises andpresentations.
