    BA (Hons)
  • Course description
    The study of contemporary politics is centrally concerned
    with power, collective decision making, justice, conflict, (in)equality and
    citizenship. Politics in the 21st century must consider what role the media
    plays in these processes, including reinforcing and challenging who gets what,
    how, why, and where. This course integrates political theory and practice.

    You’ll learn about politics through the lens of a variety of
    disciplines: political science, international relations, anthropology, media,
    marketing, journalism, digital communications, economics, psychology, history,
    and philosophy. This interdisciplinary approach provides you with rich insights
    into politicians, political systems and organisations at local, national and
    international levels.

    You can attend a wide variety of extra-curricular activities
    including conferences as well as field trips to locations such as Westminster,
    Brussels, and local government and charities. You’ll also have global
    opportunities through our study abroad programme and a range of internationally
    focused activities on and off campus. What’s more, you’ll complete a work
    placement during your course and can decide whether to do four or 30 weeks,
    which will help you foster professional relationships, build contacts and
    ultimately hand you invaluable experience.

    This course helps you become a reflective, critical citizen
    ready for a range of careers as a politician, civil servant, working at
    nongovernmental organisations (NGOs), or representing organisations who need
    politically shrewd and media-savvy employees.
