Philosophy and International Relations BA (Hons): Joint Honours degrees give you the maximum flexibility to study subject areas that really interest you. You can shape your study according to your strengths, interests and career ambitions. PHILOSOPHY at NTU aims to develop your powers of argument, critical thinking and conceptual analysis through the search for answers to ultimate questions. This course differs from the typical philosophy courses on offer at most other universities as it is not a course in the history of ideas. The course is organised around some of the philosophical problems faced by today's decision-makers in their professional lives. In general, this course examines the interface between philosophical ideas and everyday life, and has been designed in order to help you think more clearly and more critically about the world in which you live. INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS at NTU is the study and understanding of the changing world in which we live. It explores relations between states, peoples, social movements and cultural and religious communities. Its major focus is diplomatic relations - war, peace, conflict and cooperation. You will analyse complex and challenging situations. This course will help you develop a greater awareness of the complexity and connectedness of the processes that shape our worlds. This opens up careers in a wide range of fields in the public and private sectors, fostering the skills, imagination, understanding and flexibility which employers demand.
