Course outline

An introduction to the study of international relations. The focus is on how international organisations, states and non-state actors raise and address global challenges such as security and human insecurity, humanitarian intervention, global trade and finance, development and poverty, environmental degradation, warfare, and respect for human rights. The course is informed by and introduces a range of international relations theories.

Learning outcomes

This course offers students the opportunity to be exposed to various world music scenes and to perceive them as signs of communication that need to be understood within particular cultural contexts and time. Studying selected theories, methods and perspectives in the study of music and identities, students learn to think and write critically, and verbally express their ideas through participating in classroom and tutorial discussions. By completing course assignments, students are guided to understand the relationships between music, society and human behaviours and reflect themselves as to who they are and how culturally they are constructed.
