The MA in Politics gives students the skills they need to be prepared for the challenges we all face in a world that is rapidly changing and where politics matters more than ever.

Key Features

The MA in Politics is designed to provide a high level training in the core components of contemporary political study. It provides a solid grounding in research skills and theoretical approaches to politics.

It then allows students to select options that focus on global, comparative and/or British politics as well as political theory and philosophy.
