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. Our course covers the history of modern political thought, comparative government and mass politics in modern Britain. You can also choose to study specialist areas like gender politics, international relations, comparative or country-specific politics in the Middle East, Africa, USA or Russia.
