POLITICS

Politics is a subject that encompasses a range of issues central to an understanding of contemporary society. Whether at a local, regional or national level, political decisions affect all citizens and are instrumental in shaping the future of the nation. At Liverpool Hope, we address an array of topics that allow us to explore the theory and practical application of politics. We look at local issues in Liverpool, the politics of the UK and the EU and consider broader theoretical concepts such as the historical evolution of democracy and how it is implemented in the world today.

Politics is a very dynamic and ever-changing subject. We actively encourage debate and discussion amongst our students, and aim to encourage a stronger awareness and appreciation of different points of view. The study of politics at Liverpool Hope does not just take place in the classroom and the library. We organise field trips to regional and national institutions and we support you to get involved with community engagement projects. We organise field trips to regional and national institutions and try to engage with politics as it evolves with elections, referendum and the processes of change.

Politics addresses the responsibilities of individuals and collective groups in society. It considers issues of citizenship, community and individualism, and examines how society can evolve to enhance individual sovereignty. You will be taught by staff who are experts in their field, and will help you to develop the skills you need to have a long and successful career in politics.
