Course summary

Programme aims

This programme aims to equip you with key intellectual skills to analyse contemporary domestic and international affairs from a philosophically informed perspective, with a particular focus on their ethical and critical dimensions.

In our interconnected world, pressing political issues such as migration, accelerating climate change, entrenched racism, global poverty, and political violence challenge our existing institutions as well as traditional ways of doing and thinking about politics. Since such issues cannot be contained within the boundaries of the nation state, they need to be examined in light of increasing global integration.

How will I learn?

This political theory programme tackles these international challenges ethically and critically, with a view to providing a complex perspective on the rights and wrongs of international affairs and their global political and economic consequences.

As well as delving into the history of global political thought, you will be trained in contemporary traditions of political theory, with a view to developing a sophisticated, theoretically informed view of the current political horizon. You will also develop key transferable skills related to: logical argumentation; writing; research; presentational practice
