Course summary

This programme combines the two complementary fields of politics and philosophy in a joint honours programme, with around half of the programme in each field. Your knowledge of each will enhance the other.

Rather than simply studying the core elements of politics and philosophy “side by side”, you will see how the study of each is relevant for understanding political practices and behaviour, and for the understanding and development of political ideals. To this end, in your third year, you will take a course in Philosophy and Public Policy, which examines specific policy questions from conceptual and normative perspectives.

The study of politics involves analysis of the ways in which individuals and groups define and interpret political issues and seek to shape government decisions. It encompasses a broad spectrum of activities relating to public affairs, from elections and bureaucracies to wars and terrorism. Philosophy poses challenging questions, underlying many of the issues confronting the world today, considering topics such as ethics, metaphysics, epistemology, politics and law, and science.
