Studying for a degree in Politics offers a fantastic opportunity to study the challenges facing states and citizens in the 21st Century, and to contribute to debates about the theory and practice of politics in the contemporary era. You will study the ideas that have shaped the political systems by which we organise our political lives and the practical and theoretical difficulties faced by decision makers across the political world. You will debate key issues and events as they unfold. You will learn about political theory, institutions, and history and you will be asked to question your own role in world politics and what is required of you as a citizen of a state. Our course equips you with knowledge and understanding of how political events, ideas are underpinned by the power relationships between the state, citizens and civil society; the relationships between states and across borders; and the past lives of people in Britain, Europe and across the globe. The course makes use of cutting-edge learning and assessment methods and offers students the opportunity to study foreign languages and to study abroad as part of their degree, all in a university which prioritises the student experience on a green and high-tech campus.
