We focus on the most important events and debates in politics and security. British political history after World War II. The causes of conflict in modern times. Land, air and sea power. Culture wars. Terrorism and cyberwarfare. Brexit, American politics, and foreign policy. And by examining them, you’ll gain critical insights into the domestic and global significance of war, politics and security.
All our 3-year courses give you the option to study abroad for a trimester, whether in Europe, the USA or Hong Kong. And through our unique internship opportunities, you’ll get access to Parliament or another politics-related placement. These include the Hansard Society, the Humber Local Economic Partnership, and the Royal Armouries Museum.
Our Westminster placement scheme has been running for over 35 years, and is one of the most extensive of its kind in the UK. You get the chance to work with an MP or peer. Our links with a large pool of MPs mean we can likely match you with a politician whose role reflects your area of interest. While on placement, you'll enjoy access to our exclusive seminar series presented by senior Parliamentary officials including Black Rod and the Speaker.
