Politics - University of Salford

This course is dedicated to examining the most central and critical questions regarding our political world and its pasts and futures. It differs from other courses in its critical emphasis, wide range of module options, and smaller class sizes. According to Aristotle, humans are political animals. We only exist in and through political communities. How do we organise ourselves as communities? Who has power in these communities and how is it used? Do our communities lead us to ever greater forms of freedom and liberty or do we create the conditions for our own continued domination and subjection? Ordinary citizens often feel disempowered because they find the political world confusing. By providing knowledge and understanding of how politics works, this course gives you the tools you need, as a citizen, to insist that elected representatives remain effectively accountable to you. There is the opportunity to spend some or all of your second year studying abroad with excellent placement opportunities to boost your CV. Students who spend the whole of their second year studying at an Erasmus (European) university may qualify for a tuition fee waiver.
