We encourage our students to explore political ideas, systems and processes and to learn how to collect data, develop knowledge and construct arguments.
From American politics and society to climate change and the media - take a detailed look at our politics modules:
Politics is everywhere, it’s local, national, international. It affects everything we do. I chose Liverpool because there is such a nice atmosphere, it’s not huge, you can interact with your lecturers all the time. They are always enthusiastic. When I came to visit, that enthusiasm was contagious. With politics, it’s not just picking up a book, you are constantly learning.
