Course summary

During a period of profound and unprecedented political upheaval, a degree in politics will equip you with the skills necessary to succeed in a changing world. Politics is about power, ideas and values. Politics at Suffolk will give you the knowledge and space to engage deeply with both political practice and political theory and philosophy. As well as exploring British and international political structures, our course offers a distinct focus on ‘political action’ across party politics, campaigns and community politics. The backbone of this degree is your involvement in project work and applied research.Throughout the course, we maintain a critical focus on how political ideas and policies translate into ‘real, felt’ political action and outcomes ‘on the ground’. This includes relating established and emerging theory to issues of contemporary social justice and social policy. Politics graduates have an important range of analytical, data and organisational skills applicable to a full range of graduate opportunities. Jobs directly related to a politics degree include Government and Civil Service roles, covering public affairs, consultancy and research. Jobs in the field of marketing, media, public relations, and local government are also popular.The political landscape is changing. New dynamic relationships are being forged between the left and right, and between localism, nationalism and globalism. There has never been a more exciting time to study politics.
