Once you complete your foundation year you’ll be able to specialise in subjects such as international relations, diplomacy or international conflict.**More about this course**Our Politics (including foundation year) BA course will introduce you to a wide range of current topics in the field of social sciences.Our academic tutors and mentors will help you progress in your degree and ensure that you gain the key skills for further academic study and employment.
