This distinctive Politics degree examines the theory and practice of politics, integrating both national and international perspectives. You'll learn about the significance of an increasingly globalised political environment and understand the significance of politics as a human activity.
If you have a keen interest in current affairs and international trends, then the BA (Hons) Politics degree at NTU is ideal for you. This course encourages you to engage directly as a political scientist or theorist by doing your own independent research, culminating in the production of a final year dissertation on a topic of your choice.
Throughout the degree you'll develop a greater awareness of the complexity and connectedness of the processes that shape our world. This opens up careers in a wide range of fields in the public and private sectors, fostering the skills, imagination, understanding and flexibility that employers demand.
