Programme profile

In this programme, you will study politics and social sciences, with a special emphasis on affairs in modern Europe.

Students will examine how political ideas are framed and manipulated in different social contexts. In a global, interconnected world, societies are linked closer than ever. What does this mean for the future of government, and how has modern technology redefined societies to be governed? The programme is designed to give an overall understanding of how politics intersects with sociology, anthropology, religion and religious worldviews, psychology, and economics. Politics and Society students develop critical thinking, communication and research skills essential for careers in government, politics, journalism, diplomacy and business.
