O que eu aprenderei?

How are we to understand political life – as the expression of violence, tradition, domination, the search for freedom, the struggle for equality? How should we think about democracy – as the participation of citizens, the contest of representatives or the search for a common good through deliberation? What is justice – equality for all human beings, solidarity among some human beings or the free play of personal choice?

These questions have exercised minds since ancient Athens and, in recent years, they have received new interpretations in political theory, one of the most intellectually fertile sub-disciplines of politics.

Our MA Political Theory will help you secure a solid grasp of key debates in social and political thought, give you a strong foundation in theoretical principles. You explore topics including:

  • Research methods in critical political theory and analysis
  • Classical and contemporary texts of political theory
  • Democratic theory and social justice
  • Philosophy of social science
  • Ethics and public policy

Our Department of Government is one of the most prestigious in Europe, with an outstanding record of teaching, research, and publication. We are rated top in the UK for research (REF 2014) and have consistently been the highest-rated politics department in the country since national assessments began.
