A lecturer addresses a busy classroom of students who are sat behind rows of desks.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, 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.
