Politics and International Relations

This programme allows students to specialise in the study of global politics while also incorporating courses from a variety of other subject pathways. The study of politics addresses questions such as: Why do people vote the way they do? What is the difference between the ideas of different political parties? How is the operation of one political system different from that of another? Why is the international system constituted in the way that it is? Why do politicians behave in the way that they do? What do words such as 'democracy', 'power', 'freedom', 'rights' and 'liberty' mean? Responses to these questions are covered by the study of international politics, comparative politics, government and political theory. In the final year, students may be offered a work placement in regional or local politics, or within one of the many interest and pressure groups based in London, or even in the House of Commons. The ability to reflect critically on this work experience forms part of the assessment of the placement. The aims of the programme are: * To offer students a range of courses which provide an appropriate introduction to both politics and the practical implementation of political activity * Enable students to follow various strands within the academic discipline of politics * To offer students the opportunity to develop a number of skills that are valuable in both the political arena as well as in more general careers. On completing this programme successfully, you'll be well equipped for many opportunities in the political sphere such as working in central and local government or for an MP or pressure group. Additionally you will have opportunities in public service, information and communications, the media, voluntary sectors, as well as in the National Health Service, teaching, research and business. Some career options may require further study. *Unistats data: 100 per cent of students agreed that:* * They were satisfied overall * They got sufficient advice and support * Staff were good at explaining things * Staff made the subject interesting * 80 per cent of students in work/study six months after finishing * 60 per cent of students in professional/managerial job at six months
