Why do countries go to war? How much tax should we pay? Can foreign policy ever be wholly ethical? If these are the kind of questions that interest you then you'll love exploring them through this stimulating, discussion-based degree course. You will learn about the fundamental elements of politics and international relations, address some of the contemporary world's most pressing problems and explore the ethical and moral issues that arise when political authority is exercised. You will have the option to take modules in other subjects, such as economics and history, to broaden your knowledge and learn other skills. You can also take part in other activities that are related to politics. For example, you can contribute to the Department of Politics and International Relations' weekly politics radio show and learn other useful skills such as presenting and audio editing.
