The study of politics looks at the process of gaining and exerting governance. How is power handled and where does it lie?

There are few more exciting and relevant disciplines than that of politics. You’ll explore and make sense of current issues at a national and global level. This will provide you with an invaluable understanding of the world. You’ll learn how to identify and respond to challenges facing contemporary political systems.
