At Brighton we offer five distinct but interconnected politics degrees – you can choose to specialise in environmental politics, gender politics, international relations or social change, or study one degree encompassing all of these elements.
As a politics student, you’ll be part of our School of Humanities and Applied Social Science, which has a reputation for its research in radical politics, applied philosophy and ethics, critical theory and social movements and global politics.
You’ll be learning as part of a lively community at our Brighton: Falmer campus, with accommodation, a library, restaurants and cafes, and a students' union shop and bar on-site.
