With the 2017 snap general election, Brexit and the Donald Trump US Presidency, politics is as divisive as ever for those involved in the debate. Critically explore politics and examine some of the pressing issues facing us today, such as climate change, human rights, migration and the crisis of capitalism. You also will explore how the role of the state, international power relations, ethics, and political movements and ideologies such as Marxism have profound implications for the organisation of our society. In your second year and third year, you will have a choice of optional modules and a dissertation, which you can tailor to your interests.
At the end of your first year, you can choose to pursue a single honours degree and achieve a BA (Hons) Politics award, or alternatively you can choose to study one of our pathways of specialised modules and gain a combined degree in one of the following:
BA (Hons) Politics with Global Development
BA (Hons) Politics with Peace Studies
BA (Hons) Politics with International Relations
BA (Hons) Politics with Political Economy
You will also be able to apply direct to study each of these pathways from your first year.
