Our BA Politics degree programme will equip you with the ability to analyse, understand and debate issues in the UK and global politics and international relations. You will explore political theory and philosophy as well as the practice of modern politics in our everyday lives.

You will engage in debate around major political challenges, such as global power politics, terrorism, climate change and the politics of gender, race and class. You will graduate as an authority on a wide range of topics, and be equipped with the confidence and skills you need for a successful career.

Guest speakers and field trips to political organisations enrich the course and provide further opportunities for learning. Through career mentoring events and work experience opportunities, your employability will also be greatly enhanced. You will also have the opportunity to study abroad with one of our global university partners. This course also has the option of a one-year paid work placement, to boost your employability even further.

The course is designed to build your professional skills and broaden your horizons by giving you the experience of a wide range of activities, such as presenting at conferences and creating book reviews, blogs and digital campaigns.
