Politics is the study of power and how power operates in all its forms: through individuals, structures, internationally and domestically. Its principal focus is on power relations among individuals, social groups and nations. Philosophers seek to answer questions of universal importance about the nature of reality, our knowledge of the world, and the truth of our existence.This Joint Honours degree will provide you with the skills to explore the philosophical and political landscape of human consciousness throughout time and place.
