Do you ever wonder how power is allocated and who takes part in collective decision-making? Throughout this course, you'll consider the meaning and experiences of justice, conflict, (in)equality and citizenship in the context of pressing global issues. Whether it's the UK's negotiation to leave the EU, the conflict in Syria, North Korean nuclear testing, the global response to climate change, or NHS funding, politics exists in a hyper-mediated environment, raising challenges and opportunities for citizens, commentators, politicians and political organisations. You'll examine and evaluate different insights to understand the modern world in depth.

- You'll have the opportunity to tailor your course according to your passions, interests and ultimately your career aspirations
