Political change and political argument are at the centre of our rapidly changing world. Our Politics degree focuses on the key issues and ideas which drive these often controversial developments.

Our Politics BA (Hons) degree equips you to think critically and analytically about contemporary political issues and institutions. It allows you to understand the mechanics of these political institutions, as well as a variety of topical issues, ideas and controversies. The aim of this degree is to both deepen your knowledge and understanding of politics and, in the process, to enable you to become sharper citizens to meet some of the major political challenges of the twenty-first century.

The BA (Hons) Politics degree progresses from a foundation in the key concepts of political practice and theory to an in-depth understanding of more specialised subjects such as populism, the EU, political violence, justice and British politics. It is structured around a multitude of subject areas arranged into modules, each of which is worth a number of credits. It is intended by your final year that you will have successfully completed 360 credits to graduate. For further insight into what you can expect to study on our Politics degree, please take a look at the modules listed below.
