Course summary

TEF Silver

Manchester Metropolitan University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

The principal focus of this degree is power relations between individuals, social groups and nations – so you’ll explore how the local, national and international intersect to influence both high and low politics, as well as questions of power and justice. You’ll study a broad range of topics, from UK politics, political thought and theory, to international politics, international relations and ‘issue’ politics such as human rights, environmentalism, terrorism and conflict. And that’s just the beginning.

A wide variety of options mean you can pursue your own interests – with things becoming increasingly flexible as you progress through the course. In the final year, you’ll engage more directly with current academic debates and contemporary political developments.

With practical skills training, including advanced analytical approaches, as well as an opportunity to study abroad – with all the experience that brings – a politics degree opens doors to a range of interesting and rewarding career possibilities.

This course has a Foundation Year available.
