The Politics degree at Kingston will help you find some answers to problems in modern society through exploring power, policy and protest.
We offer a wide range of modules in each year of the course, covering different branches of politics including area studies, public policy, political theory, and political sociology.
You can also study modules offered on different degree courses, such as Sociology, Psychology and History.
The recent Quality Assessment Agency rated us extremely highly, making us one of the best politics teaching teams in the country.
We want you to succeed – we provide strong academic support, a personal tutor and skills workshops.
Our diverse methods of assessment mean you will develop your writing, oral and presentation skills – all key demands in the modern job market.
You do not need to have studied politics before and the course is not just for those who want to work in politics or journalism. Our graduates have gone on to careers in law, the civil service, teaching, finance, and television research after completing the course.
During the past few years many students have gone on to specialist studies leading to masters qualifications, including Chinese politics, Latin American politics, development studies, conflict studies and business administration (an MBA).
