We live in a time of great social upheaval and dramatic political change. This dynamic degree will allow you to explore political ideas, structures and approaches that will help you to understand these complex circumstances.

As a Politics student you'll gain expertise in data analysis, research, critical thinking and more as you develop an in-depth understanding of political theory, international relations, development studies and systems of government used around the world.

Core modules in this programme will enable you to gain a grounding in the discipline. You'll also be able to pursue topics that suit your own interests and concerns by choosing from a wide range of optional modules exploring topics, from political psychology to security studies, supported by the unique breadth of research specialisms within the School of Politics and International Studies.

On this course you'll have the opportunity to study abroad, allowing you to develop an international perspective on your subject or undertake a work placement which will give you an insight into working life in a particular organisation or sector linked to your studies.

Throughout the course, you'll gain a diverse skillset that will be valuable to you as a citizen, as well as in your future career - whatever path you choose to take.
