Course summary

Our BA Politics degree programme will equip you with the ability to analyse, understand and debate issues in international and UK politics, international relations and understand both political philosophy and modern politics in action. You will get to engage in debate around current political challenges such as global power politics, terrorism, climate change and the politics of gender, race and class. You will graduate as an authority on a wide range of topics, and equipped for a successful career. Guest speakers and field trips to political organisations enrich the course and provide further opportunities for learning. Through career mentoring events and work experience opportunities, your employability will also be greatly enhanced. You will also have the opportunity to study abroad with one of our global university partners. This course also has the option of a one year paid work placement, to boost your employability even further. Authentic assessments - for example presenting at a conference - will enable you to build networks and broaden your intellectual horizon. You will also get to create book reviews, blogs, digital campaigns and policy critiques, as the course aims to accommodate a range of learning styles.
