Hi there!
At the University of Kent, we have a reasonably customisable course. If political theory interests you, then you have plenty of opportunity to place this into your degree.
In my first year, I studied a module on political thought, which was mainly centred around liberalism, the concept of freedom and liberal political thinkers such as Rawls, Mill and Wollstonecraft.
In my second year, I then took two modules on post-communist and soviet Russia where I was able to learn about socialism, communism and fascism as well as a module on feminist theory and its contribution to politics, this is where we addressed issues such as intersectionality, whether some feminist theory was outdated, body politics and applying feminist theories to the modern day political climate.
This year, my final year, I am taking a module on right-wing populism and how it has links to fascism and also potentially anarchism.
There are other modules that run for this course, and of course, they may be subject to availability, if you're interested in looking at our other modules then you can by looking here https://www.kent.ac.uk/courses/modules.
I hope this helps!
