Geopolitics, traditionally the study of power relations across geographic space, has transformed to embrace the cyber domain, astropolitics, and the geopolitics of sustainability. The subject explores classical themes of seapower and the return of great power rivalry, and critical issue areas such as the geopolitical impacts of climate change and resource competition. Students 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 students with knowledge and understanding of the dynamics of contemporary geopolitical challenges.
