About

The Political Science programme from Richmond American University in London is based on the American liberal arts tradition, which offers a multi-disciplinary approach, combining areas of study from the Humanities. 

Visit the Visit programme website for more information

Overview

You’ll focus on three core areas of Political Science : political thought, political systems and public policy, going from the theory of each to real world political situations.

You’ll enjoy a broad study of political thinkers and theories, going beyond the classroom to experience practical policy issues. Discover British politics in the setting of the Houses of Parliament.

From Global Development Politics to Policy Making in a Globalised World, our students gain a truly international understanding of politics and its processes.

Research plays an important role, so that you’ll acquire important skills using the latest technology which will be invaluable for any career. Some of our senior students have the opportunity to collaborate with academic staff on research.

A number of fascinating electives are on offer, giving you the chance to specialise in topics which appeal to you, such as ‘the American Presidency’, ‘Nationalism and Conflict’, ‘Political Communications’ and ‘Peace and Justice’.

You can also take courses which allow you to specialise in the politics of different regions, including the USA, Latin America, the EU, Asia, Russia, Africa and the Middle East.

Many of our students of our Political Science programme from Richmond American University in London  also gain international political experience through an accredited internship, which helps shape their education and career choice.
