Our BA Politics degree is one of the most popular undergraduate programmes in the department of POLSIS. It will provide you with an excellent understanding of the main approaches, theories and debates in politics. Politics looks at how power is exercised, how political decisions are made, and who these decisions are made by. On the BA Political Science degree you will learn about campaigns, elections, protest movements, policy issues and political ideals. You will explore different political arguments, rival theories and alternative explanations, whilst developing your skills in analytical and critical enquiry, debating and self-motivation. Your experience of studying in a foreign country will help to increase confidence and give you a different academic perspective. We have exchange partners both across Europe and internationally.
