Canterbury Christ Church University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Skills of clear-sighted political analysis are needed more than ever before, as our traditional political ‘certainties’ crumble. Our Politics course situates the big issues of the day in their historical and philosophical contexts. You’ll explore continuity and change in local, national and global dimensions of politics, and scrutinise political ideas, structures and approaches that will help you to understand our complex, and ever-changing circumstances. There is strong emphasis on helping you gain the transferable skills that employers are looking for. You’ll develop skills in critical thought and analysis, working as part of a team, networking, and the ability to communicate complex ideas clearly and concisely. This will help you to enter roles in a variety of sectors such as national or local government, non-governmental organisations, journalism or teaching.
