Department to teach new Parliamentary Studies module with the Houses of Parliament.
The Department of Politics is proud to announce that Birkbeck has become part of a select group of universities invited to be part of an exciting new politics module. Co-taught by members of the department and officials at Westminster in 2013/14, the Department of Politics at Birkbeck will be jointly running ‘Parliamentary Studies’ with the Houses of Parliament. The course will give students a unique opportunity to explore and understand how Parliament operates with the help of Parliamentary officials themselves.
‘Parliamentary Studies’ will analyse how Parliament works in theory and practice, comparing Westminster with other institutions and exploring the themes and issues around the functioning of Parliaments in the modern world. The new course will combine the latest theoretical innovations and research with the real life experience of how a legislature works.
More details will follow on how to apply and the course content.
