  • Course description
    You will explore the political and economic consequences of
    contemporary global issues such as Brexit and the rise of nationalism and
    protectionism, as evidenced by the election of Donald Trump, the rise of Marine
    Le Pen and the German AFD party. We discuss some of the biggest issues facing
    the world today including pollution and climate change, health and healthcare,
    unemployment, inequality, and global poverty. Through these discussions you’ll
    develop an understanding of the significance of global politics and the factors
    that influence income, wealth and wellbeing.

    You will also explore the social, historical and cultural
    contexts and the role of the media in contemporary politics and economics.
    Whether parliamentary decisions or street protests, information travels
    worldwide almost instantaneously and therefore we must consider the role that
    the media plays, including to reinforce and challenge who gets what, how, why,
    and where.

    Outside of lectures you can attend a wide variety of extracurricular
    activities run by the Centre for Politics & Media Research, including
    conferences as well as field trips to locations such as Westminster, Brussels,
    and local government and charities. You are also encouraged to engage in
    current research, working alongside staff as Student Research Assistants, which
    can lead to publications in peer-reviewed journals.

    This course helps you become a reflective, critical citizen
    ready for a range of careers.
