Every day, international issues are in the news headlines – this is your chance to become an expert on relations between states, economies, ideas and societies. In a world where nuclear weapons remain primed for use, the world economy teeters on the brink of collapse and delicate ecosystems are under threat, it is little wonder that our International Relations degree is proving a popular choice among students who wish to better understand the world’s most challenging problems.
International Relations is a multidisciplinary subject, which draws in contributions from politics, history, media, sociology, law, economics and religion. Global issues dominate the news headlines on a daily basis and International Relations will allow you to focus on this dimension of politics. This is an opportunity to become an expert in international issues in a historical, political and cultural context.
All our academics are conducting internationally published research. Our key strengths are in Theories of International Relations; Peace and Conflict; British and US foreign policy and EU and UN politics. Our subject deals squarely with some of the most daunting, intractable but important challenges of today.For more details and information about this course visit:
Tourism is one of the world’s largest industries and has become one of its biggest sources of employment. Our Tourism degree examines the industry from both management and academic perspectives. It looks at contemporary issues such as the structure of the tourism industry; the relationship between tourism and its host environments and cultures; the evolving trends in consumer behaviour; tourism destination management and global tourism development.
Liverpool is an ideal place to study tourism as the city is home to a number of key tourist attractions in the UK, such as the Royal Albert Dock and waterfront, Tate Liverpool, Premier League football, National Museums Liverpool and the Beatles legacy. The city’s year as European Capital of Culture in 2008, has also contributed to continued growth of the city’s tourism sector. Therefore, due to the dynamic nature of the city’s tourism industry, there are constant opportunities to explore and investigate contemporary aspects of an international destination on your doorstep.
We pay close attention to enhancing your student experience and facilitating effective student learning. You will be taught by a team of tutors with a wide range of industry and academic experience of Tourism. Tutors take pride in being available to students and offering a high level of support. Our degree curriculum embeds material which aims to not only provide an in-depth, up-to-date knowledge on tourism, but also to refine critical thinking and develop your key transferable skills. We work closely with a wide range of tourism stakeholders to ensure that students gain insight into the ongoing management and delivery of a successful tourism destination.
A Placement Year option is available for this course. Undertaking a placement year as part of your degree programme offers you the opportunity to gain valuable work experience alongside your studies.
