Our Department of Politics and International Relations and School of Law have excellent reputations for high quality research and teaching, and for engagement in policy and practice, through active involvement with government bodies and voluntary statutory agencies.
Studying our BA Politics and Law degree, you will gain a solid foundation in politics and law at all levels and in all forms.
In your first year on the course, you will study Introduction to politics and government and Introductions to international relations. As you progress, the flexible nature of this course allows you to specialise in those aspects of domestic and international politics that most interest you, for example, the recent global economic crisis, changes in the European Union, human migration and the threats posed by terrorists and new communications technologies.
Law modules include the English Legal System, Methods and Legal Practice (Legal Skills), Public Law, Public International Law, International Human Rights, Jurisprudence and Law of the European Union.
Together, we offer you high quality teaching in relatively small departments with focus on considerable individual attention.
On graduating, you will have gained a wide variety of transferable skills, which will allow you to progress to a range of successful careers internationally, in and out of political and law-related fields, as well as to further study.
