We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Politics explore the structures and functions of political systems, and the ways in which they affect sociocultural groups.
Related subjects include International Politics & Human Rights, and European Politics & Policy. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Cultural Studies, Law, or Politics.
Political thought can be traced back to early antiquity, with seminal works such as Plato's Republic, Aristotle's Politics and the works of Confucius. Today, many of the concepts that these thinkers discussed are still applicable.
Courses in this field will provide you with a theoretical and philosophical grounding in Politics, typically on a national, international and global scale. You will analyse various political systems, and the frameworks that are deemed as acceptable political methods within a given society.
For example, this could include analysis of the distribution of power and resources within a given community, or an investigation of conflict and political identity.
Careers in this field are extremely broad, and may include traditional routes into government, or policy-making for regulatory authorities and government agencies. You might also branch into academia and publishing, or media industries like broadcasting and journalism.
