This is a flexible programme allowing you to choose a combination of modules (from the domestic to the global) that best suits your background and interests in the broad arena of politics.
The course provides a variety of methods through which to study political life. You will take five taught modules each assessed by a 5,000 word essay. The programme culminates in the writing of a 20,000-word dissertation in a subject area of your own choosing.
The programme prepares you for a range of careers – from think tanks, to business, non-governmental organisations, and the civil service. It also provides a firm foundation for those looking to pursue academic careers.
You will study a range of modules as part of your course, some examples of which are listed below.
Information contained on the website with respect to modules is correct at the time of publication, but changes may be necessary, for example as a result of student feedback, Professional Statutory and Regulatory Bodies' (PSRB) requirements, staff changes, and new research.
