Politics is a broad field of study encompassing areas such as comparative government, political sociology, international relations and political theory. In the first year, you will be introduced to the basic concepts and theories in political theory and comparative government. In the second and third years, you will be able to tailor the course to suit your individual interests, choosing from a long list of core papers (including modules in international relations and political sociology) and specialized options ranging from comparative European politics to history of political thought.

Politics is offered as part of two joint degrees: Philosophy, Politics & Economics or History & Politics. A wealth of further information is available from the University pages:

The teaching team at Hertford is made up of Radoslaw Zubek, the Fellow and Tutor in Politics, and our College Lecturer, Dana Mills. College teaching is done in tutorials and classes both of which complement common University lectures.
