Political Theory

The programme provides students with the opportunity to get to grips with some of the central and enduring questions of political theory. These are questions central to political life in the 21st Century and the programme allows students to explore them with reference to great political theorists both past and present. The core module provides students with a working knowledge of contemporary political theorists such as John Rawls, David Gauthier and Michael Walzer together with an investigation of the most important approaches to the history of political theory. A variety of option modules allow students to study issues connected with toleration, continental political theory, legal theory, and political integrity. Students will also write a dissertation on a topic of their choosing.

Sponsorship information
