American political issues, the Holocaust, democracy, globalisation, Parties and Voters in the UK – these are only some of the political aspects and key events you will be able to explore in detail as part of the course. As well as providing a foundation in the approaches to, and theories of, politics and international relations, the programme will develop your understanding of the importance of politics in a globalising and integrating world. This degree is designed to enable you to study international affairs in their political and historical contexts. You will address critical political questions, such as: Who has political power? Why do they have it? To whom are they accountable? In whose interest do they exercise it? What is globalisation? Is violent protest ever justified?
