This distinctive programme is one of the few in the UK which enables you to combine politics and international relations to gain a well-rounded perspective on some of the most important issues shaping our world. Field work overseas and a focus on career-related experience and skills, ensure learning is both research-led and relevant to your future career aspirations. The study of Politics in Cornwall is characterised by its focus on some of the biggest political challenges facing the world today such as inequality, climate change, the global financial crisis, conflict, the depletion of natural resources, public disillusionment with politics, and the changing balance in world power. We believe Politics shouldn’t just be an intellectual exercise; it’s the means by which people change the world. So, although we’ll teach you about political systems and theories, we’ll apply these to world events and the major issues setting the modern political agenda. For example, we encourage you to get out of the classroom to gain a bigger perspective. Whether you’re visiting the United Nations HQ in New York, working as an intern in Westminster, talking to local veterans about the legacies of war, or providing consultancy for a community organisation in Cornwall, you’ll have opportunities to experience how politics operates in practice. Our programmes produce graduates who can engage imaginatively in the process of understanding and analysing complex and sophisticated problems by using critical approaches that blend detailed and broad levels of analysis.
