Politics at Brighton takes a progressive approach to the subject; students are encouraged to develop a critical understanding of the unequal distribution of power and resources, and of democracy, participation and representation. Students build their knowledge of political ideas and movements, international relations, the structures and processes of government in Western Europe and engage in-depth study of the British state and its changing relationship with the EU. Students have the opportunity to volunteer in the community, either as part of the course or through the university’s award-winning Community University Partnership Programme (Cupp). There is also an internship opportunity with an international charity.
