What Will You Study

Exploring some of the themes, concepts and events that have shaped the contemporary political scene, you will begin your degree with our core module in Politics in the Modern World and will choose two further modules, this might be in Politics or another subject that complements your major.

During your degree, you will learn from academics many of whom are committed to both teaching and research. As you continue with your studies, you will increasingly specialise through a varied range of modules which focus on topical questions concerning government and politics in Britain, Europe and the world. Your second year options include modules such as Politics of Development and Global changes; The Politics of Race, and Modern Political Thought: Liberty, Theory and Practice.

In your final year, you have the opportunity to undertake a sustained investigation on a specific political subject that interests you and can choose from a wide range of modules, such as Africa and Global Politics, Islamic Politics, and Contemporary Issues in Human Rights.
