This joint honours degree combines the interrelated disciplines of politics and sociology to equip you with an in-depth understanding of the political and social landscape, including the social forces that create and sustain political institutions. If you are curious about how decisions are made and communicated, or thought about a career writing laws, running a community organisation, or working in the Civil Service or Parliament, then this is the degree for you. You will gain a real-life understanding of the world of politics, looking at current practice in the UK, while also focusing on developments and changes around the world. This is balanced with the analysis of social trends and the study of sociological developments in political, cultural and historical contexts. The programme provides a unique insight into policy making in practice, enabling you to explore the nature and impact of social challenges alongside the opportunities and constraints of associated political decisions and policies. You will graduate with a set of key transferable skills including the ability to conduct research, craft a message to communicate a particular point of view and analyse and understand complex information.
