Course summary

Course Overview

Politics shapes the world. It impacts every area of our lives – the economy, environment, media and civil society. It has a fascinating history. And it provides a promising career path for your future.

Here at Bucks New University, we’re dedicated to preparing you for the working world. This course covers the theory, but it also gives you a solid understanding of what skills you’ll need for a career in politics and international relations.

  • Discover the driving forces behind political, economic and socio-cultural changes across the world
  • London, one of the world’s greatest cities, is just a short train ride away
  • We’ve made sure the course is focused on your career, with topics relevant to any employer in the sector
  • It’s not just lectures – you’ll have plenty of opportunities to visit political institutions, take part in workshops and use our digital resources


What are my career prospects

We’ve made sure the course has a good variety of teaching and learning methods. That means you’ll have some strong skills that employers will find valuable, including report writing, policy making, presentation, group work, materials design and research.

And with the in-depth knowledge you’ll have of the sector, you should feel confident going into any interview. Some of the careers you might consider include:

  • Government
  • Intelligence
  • Diplomatic service
  • Civil service
  • Policy work
  • International aid

If you decide to take a break from politics, your skills will be equally useful in other areas, including marketing and PR, charities, law, or international business.
