Geopolitics, traditionally the study of power relations across geographic space, has transformed to embrace the cyber domain, astropolitics, and the geopolitics of sustainability. This subject introduces you to classical themes of sea power and the return of great power rivalry, and critical issue areas such as the geopolitical impacts of climate change and resource competition. You will examine geostrategies employed by global and regional actors, including China, the United States, and Russia across global regions, through the lens of geopolitical theory. This analytical approach is accompanied by historical and regional-cultural contexts, providing you with knowledge and understanding of the dynamics of contemporary geopolitical challenges.
- Identify, analyse, evaluate and communicate broad and coherent theoretical and technical knowledge of Geopolitics.
- Independently and in teams, generate and transmit solutions to unpredictable and sometimes complex problems of Geopolitics.
- Apply geopolitical knowledge and skills to professional work and/or further learning, demonstrating well-developed judgement and responsibility.
