About Political Science at School of Politics and International Studies, University of Leeds

The MSc Political Science will allow you to apply theories, methods, techniques and concepts to a range of substantive problems, as well as developing analytical skills in key areas of political science research.

You will also have the opportunity to focus your studies on either political analytics or media and democracy. Focusing on political analytics will allow you to expand your analytical abilities through game theory and will give you the opportunity to work with different types of data relevant for quantitative political research and use different types of statistical research methods to answer research questions and test theoretical hypotheses.

By focusing on media and democracy you will learn about methods of analysing political issues in the modern media environment, and will be introduced to a range of concepts and approaches to the study of media and democratic politics. You will also develop the methodological tools required to critically analyse the ways in which the media depict political events, news and phenomena.
