Politics addresses the fact that increasing numbers of people are turning away from party politics and finding other ways of 'speaking out' (through pressure groups, for example, or development of online communities, through mass protest and other forms of 'resistance' or civil disobedience, or through new approaches to campaigning). It is structured to provide a 'people centred' view of politics past and present, examining people's struggles to change worlds and to try to get things done and how they develop their systems of government, or interact with them, to solve problems and address injustice. At the centre of all these investigations are students' developing understandings of the workings of power in all its forms.
Sociology at Worcester focuses on issues at the heart of any understanding of the modern world - from social welfare to the criminal justice system, from home, work and careers to gender and 'race', from the environment to health and illness. Sociology teaching takes place through a combination of thought-provoking lectures, interesting seminar discussions, helpful tutorials and student-directed learning. As you progress through your studies you are increasingly able to focus on areas of particular interest to you and you are encouraged to pursue original thought and ideas. Throughout, you will be addressing urgent and key issues facing people in contemporary societies.
