What is the nature of the changing global system and how does it have an impact on individual well-being? What have been the major achievements, setbacks, and challenges to the global human rights movement? How do domestic and international politics interact in ways that are important for the promotion and protection of human rights? You are provided with the opportunity to find answers to these, and other compelling questions. Politics and political events dominate domestic and international news and impact on our day-to-day lives as well as shaping the future. On our BA Politics with Human Rights you will explore different aspects of political science while developing knowledge of human rights and different methods of research. As well as enjoying the friendly, vibrant atmosphere of our Colchester Campus, you are also empowered to broaden your understanding of politics through your placement year. Our four-year degree enables you to spend your third year on a placement with an external organisation, where you learn about a particular sector, company or job role, apply your academic knowledge in a practical working environment, and receive inspiration for future career pathways, but is otherwise identical to the corresponding three-year course.
