Politics students debating

Welcome from Dr Hannes Baumann, Head of the Department

It’s my pleasure to welcome you to the Department of Politics. 

There’s never been a better time to study politics. We will be debating the great challenges of our time – not just in the classroom but also at public events with leading experts. For example,

• If you are wondering about the global effects of Russia’s war on Ukraine, Politics at Liverpool can help you piece together an understanding of international security, international relations, and the global political economy.
• If you are curious about the future of the health system after the pandemic, the choices ahead of the UK post-Brexit, or the challenges of economic management in an age of global crises, you can study how public policy choices are made in national and international contexts.
• If you’re concerned by ethical and moral questions in contemporary society, you can study modules in political theory, multiculturalism, and feminist approaches.
• If you’re rallying against injustice, you can study modules such as the politics of race and marginalization in Liverpool – a city dealing with its own history and future vision.
• If you’re interested the outcomes of elections and referendums, or concerned about climate debates, the media environment, the use of populism, rhetorical devices in parliament or campaigns, you’ll find many modules to choose from.
• And if you want to translate your study of politics into practice we offer the chance to produce your own weekly radio show or to gain on-the-job experience in through placements in parliament or with leading employers in the Northwest.

These are just a few of the areas that your study of Politics might take. These are challenging times but together we can meet the challenge and make this the most exciting time to be starting a degree in politics.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Department.
