Course summary

Course overview

Politics at Chester is both theoretical and applied. It is about decision-making, conflict resolution and power, and explores the role of the state, government and institutions. Politics at Chester asks how we structure society and how society structures us and presents opportunities to engage with and critique the key political ideas, processes and institutions both domestically and in the world today.

Why study this course with us?

Politics at Chester looks behind the media headlines and assumptions that surround power politics. We explore the underlying political issues and ask age old questions such as ‘How do we achieve the good society?’; ‘Do the strong do as they please, while the weak suffer?’; and ‘Is the point of politics to change the world?’.

The teaching team brings a wealth of experience and knowledge. We may also invite guest lecturers to provide specialist sessions and where appropriate, facilitate visits to political institutions and events with regional MPs and local authorities.

Our programme has taken students out of the traditional classroom and into a wide variety of field trips, even visiting the EU parliament in Brussels in the past. We have also arranged activities such as voter registration drives.

Assessment

You will be assessed in several different ways. Most forms of assessment will be coursework based, including essays, reports and posters. You may also be assessed via written (seen and unseen) examinations as well as presentations.

Job prospects

Graduates of Politics at Chester will see their skill set and knowledge highly applicable to a range of opportunities such as careers in politics, the civil service, campaign organisations, NGOs, as well as careers in business.
