You will learn to understand political systems and confront the politics of our everyday lives through core teaching and via exciting additional learning opportunities, such as our guest lecture series and the PAIS Film Club. Areas of study include political theory, comparative politics and political systems, as well as international relations, international security, international political economy, and international development. Political theory and comparative politics provide the core course content, but you can choose options across the full range of Politics and International Studies modules, such as the Politics of Contemporary China or Power and Resistance in World Politics. You could also study a language as part of your degree, take advantage of our many internship opportunities, or study abroad in Europe, North America, Asia or Australia. You will gain key skills in a wide range of investigative, analytical and communicative research as well as presentation skills acquired through independent and collaborative study.
