Stellenbosch University | Political Science
The growing role of South Africa in the global community creates a demand for people who are trained in understanding global affairs, and who are able to operate and communicate effectively in multicultural contexts. The BA in International Studies enables students to:
gain a solid understanding of the international system, in particular the international political economy;
develop their knowledge of the peoples and traditions of diverse parts of the world;
appreciate and manage cultural diversity in practical, decision-making contexts; and
gain command of a foreign language.
The University of Stellenbosch offers a unique and exciting BA programme for people who are aiming at careers in:
combines the study of languages, culture, economics, history and international relations
explores the challenges posed by cultural diversity, both in the South African context and globally exposes students to top-level local and international lecturers
provides intensive exposure to areas that are of major importance to South Africa, such as Africa, the United States, Asia and Latin America
provides interesting opportunities for students to continue with their studies in other countries, especially at the post-graduate level.

Although the programme is predominantly bilingually, some modules in Political Science are taught by foreign academics and are therefore presented in English.
