The MA in Politics is designed to provide a high level training in the core components of contemporary political study. It provides a solid grounding in research skills and theoretical approaches to politics.
It then allows students to select options that focus on global, comparative and/or British politics as well as political theory and philosophy.
The degree is enriched by opportunities (awarded on a competitive basis) for work-based placement learning either through the Wales for Africa programme or placements arranged with government organisations in Wales.
