The Study of Politics

The common understanding of 'politics' is that it is something that politicians do. But politics goes far beyond this, encompassing a wide array of social groups and institutions. This course gives you the tools to study politics in its wide-ranging forms. You will learn about the character of argument and evidence in the study of politics and in the social sciences more broadly. It will help you to recognise the strengths and weaknesses in arguments concerning political events and processes and to analyse evidence and deploy it in your own work.

This Short Course can be taken as a stand-alone course or it may be available as part of a Certificate of Higher Education.
