Nottingham Trent University


This course offers you the opportunity to study politics at an advanced and specialised level, emphasising the interplay between the national, regional and global arenas. The underpinning theme of the course is participation; an issue that has, and looks likely to continue to be a key debate within political discourse. Throughout the course you will have the unique opportunity to explore this theme through combining academic research skills with a period of work-based learning - either through existing links you might have with an organisation / institution, or through links established throughout the course.

Course modules

Modules include: Citizens, Values and Political Participation; Political Party Development; Researching Political Issues; Dissertation or Work Based Research Project. Optional modules include one of the following: Sustainability, Citizenship and Identity; Global Governance and International Institutions.

Assessment methods

Each module employs a range of assessment methods which, through their combination of both summative and formative forms, seeks to encourage a strongly developmental approach to learning. The majority of assessments will be written-based, ranging from article reviews, essays and portfolios. At least two modules will also involve individual presentations, involving both peer and tutor-led feedback.
