We’re passionate about our students’ interests, which is why you’re able to tailor your degree to study the things that are important to you, through optional modules. You can study the historical origin of racism and how this affects today’s societies, or the Arab Spring uprisings, the rise and fall of Turkey’s soft power, or the impact of religious ideologies in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
By exploring international and national political issues, you’ll develop a solid understanding of how politics changes around the world.
Our teaching team is highly experienced and have played leading roles in professional organisations such as the Political Studies Association and the British International Studies Association. They will work with you to help you understand various theories and concepts relating to politics, including citizenship, diplomacy, authority and ethics.
Your future is our priority. That’s why we make sure you have the opportunity to undertake a work placement in your final year, giving you practical experience that can help you pursue a graduate career. Studying in London means you have the UK government, international embassies and other intergovernmental organisations right on your doorstep, helping you secure opportunities that might not be possible elsewhere.
As a university, London Met holds various political events that you can attend or even help organise. Our events include panel discussions on Brexit by leading journalists and Congress to Campus, where former members of US congress share rare and personal insights into the world of American politics. There are also opportunities for you to learn about political issues outside of the classroom, with trips to parliament, embassies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), museums and art galleries. Here, you can understand the history behind various issues relating to politics, such as power, race and gender.
