Political Parties and Elections
This course concerned above all with investigating the rich diversity of political parties and elections in the contemporary world.
Prospective students should have a 1st or good 2nd class honours degree, or its equivalent. This 1stdegree should be in politics or any other social science subject (e.g. law or sociology), or a humanities subject (e.g. history, philosophy, English, or modern languages). Where English is not a 1st language, proof of English language competence will be required (IELTS 6.5 or equivalent, with a minimum of 6 in each sub-test).
Optional modules include: parties and democracy; elections and voters; party organization; right-wing radical parties; comparative European politics; approaches to European integration.
Most modules are assessed by a diverse range of coursework (e.g., essays, critiques, reports, presentations), though some modules may also be assessed by seminar contributions and/or written exams. Students take three modules in each semester. The taught modules are completed by May, leaving the summer months for students to write their dissertation.
