Politics affects us all and never stands still. If you are curious about how decisions are made and communicated, why we have certain structures and organisations, and how they came to be formed, then we have the right degree for you.

Our politics degrees bring the real world of politics into the classroom and enable you to combine the study of Politics with either Criminology, Law, History or Sociology.

As well as developing a thorough knowledge and understanding of your chosen subject specialism, you will gain a real-life understanding of politics, looking at current practice in the UK, while also focusing on changes around the world.

Field trips

Edge Hill Politics students spent time in Westminster this Semester, both working for MPs and taking part in visits thanks to support from Edge Hill’s Student Opportunity Fund.

A group of North West MPs hosted students in their offices giving them a chance to experience what it is like to work at Westminster and to help with the tasks that go on in a Parliamentary office.

The group were involved in helping with responses to constituents, organisational tasks, and research. They got a behind-the-scenes look at Westminster that visitors rarely get. Alongside the work experience, students also saw Select Committees, Question Times, and Chamber and Westminster Hall debates.

Edge Hill Politics is grateful to all the MPs who helped host the students in particular to Stephen Twigg MP and his team for facilitating the trip.
