Why Study Politics?

Politics plays a role in every country in the world, whether it be federal, democratic, communist or republic. Many important questions are answered through politics, and global challenges such as human rights, poverty, equality, and welfare are addressed. A degree in politics prepares students for employment in many possible areas, as well as further study.

The transferable skills a Politics degree develops are in high demand. Skills include understanding how the political system operates, communication and political theory to name a few. Politics graduates have a wide variety of career choices and will gain the understanding required to work in almost any industry.

The world of politics does not stand still. At Bangor you will find that our courses are updated to meet this changing political landscape.
