"The units offered at Bournemouth University give students a wide-ranging and varied approach to the study of politics. The skills I learned on my course gave me the essential tools I needed, not only to be able to campaign effectively, but helped me to win my County Council election, which has opened a further career in politics." Byron Quayle, Politics final year student and County Councillor.
On this course you'll develop a clear understanding of UK and international politics, gaining the critical and practical skills you need to engage in modern politics. Combining insights from psychology, history, international relations and philosophy, you'll learn to evaluate politicians, political systems and organisations. This course also examines the opportunities and challenges that come with doing politics in a hyper-mediated environment.
