The study of politics is the study of power. This course starts by examining the roots and nature of political activity set in the context of wider social activity. Students will also explore governments and types of governance, as well as the nature of power and rule under democratic and non-democratic regimes. Students are also invited to attend and take part in the departmental Centre for Global Politics, Economy and Society seminars, which usually involve invited speakers from other universities who present papers on their research interests. Oxford Brookes also host the ‘Politics at Work’ seminar series for students with an interest in careers in the international development/humanitarian aid sector.
