Interested in how countries are governed and decisions made? A degree in Politics may refine your power of judgment and critical thinking.
Politics will appeal to you if you have an interest in power, government, policy-making, social movements, debating ideas; understanding wars and conflict resolution, and the impact of globalization and world events. The course includes a range of courses on British, American, European, African and Middle Eastern politics.

Politics is a broad discipline, concerned with governance, power, authority, citizenship and conflict resolution. Throughout your degree, we will cover political concepts around these issues and more, comparing your own government, its policies and decisions, with those of others around the world.

Year One

Your first year will set the foundation for the study of Politics.

Year Two

The areas that you will study in your second year examine a range of topics that will deepen and broaden your understanding of political systems, political ideas, international relations and key world events.

Optional Placement Year

After your second year, you have an opportunity to take a sandwich year, studying abroad or on professional placement.

Final Year

In your final year you will consolidate your knowledge by studying US politics, European politics, Middle East politics, political ideologies and write a dissertation on a topic of your own choice.
