This course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three or four years of study, depending on whether students choose to study abroad for a year. During the Year Zero, students will study three academic subjects relevant to their chosen course as well as a compulsory academic skills module, with additional English language for non-English speakers. Some of the most fundamental questions about political life, its principles and ideals, are philosophical in character. This course brings these disciplines of philosophy and politics together, and provides a sound academic grounding in both. Students are given plenty of opportunities to bring the resources of moral and political philosophy to bear on the issues of political life. Study topics include: Ethics; Political philosophy; European philosophy (including critical theory, phenomenology, and existentialism); Concepts in political science: state, laws, wars and political parties; Obligations, freedom, rights and equality.
