Politics and Sociology - University of Worcester

**Overview** Politics addresses the fact that increasing numbers of people are turning away from party politics and finding other ways of 'speaking out' (through pressure groups, for example, or development of online communities, through mass protest and other forms of 'resistance' or civil disobedience, or through new approaches to campaigning). It is structured to provide a 'people centred' view of politics past and present, examining people's struggles to change worlds and to try to get things done and how they develop their systems of government, or interact with them, to solve problems and address injustice. At the centre of all these investigations are students' developing understandings of the workings of power in all its forms. Sociology at Worcester focuses on issues at the heart of any understanding of the modern world - from social welfare to the criminal justice system, from home, work and careers to gender and 'race', from the environment to health and illness. Sociology teaching takes place through a combination of thought-provoking lectures, interesting seminar discussions, helpful tutorials and student-directed learning. As you progress through your studies you are increasingly able to focus on areas of particular interest to you and you are encouraged to pursue original thought and ideas. Throughout, you will be addressing urgent and key issues facing people in contemporary societies. **Key Features** - Understand the issues that confront us all, get involved, make your voice heard and make a difference - Put aside your preconceptions about politics. - Opportunities to take up work experience, study abroad at a partner university and to participate in volunteering activities - Course engagement with urgent and key issues facing contemporary societies - Encouragement to pursue original thought and ideas - Opportunities to acquire research, communication and other valuable skills **Learn more about the course at our Open Days** Visiting us is the best way to get a feel for student life at the University of Worcester.
