Discover Politics at Keele
Welcome – and congratulations on your offer to study Politics at Keele.
We’re really sorry we haven’t been able to meet you face to face at our Offer Holder Days this spring but we’re hoping you’ll find some useful information here – and that you’ll be inspired to come and join us in the autumn to get stuck into Politics.
Do you want to change the world? If you do, then you need to know about politics. Politics in SPGS provides a challenging treatment of the ways in which modern political science and political theory have understood a range of contemporary issues and debates. We take a global approach to politics which gives students the opportunity to analyse the complex events and forces that shape our world. One crucial feature of the world is its interconnectedness in geographical, social, economic, cultural and intellectual matters, and these connections cannot be understood without understanding the role of politics.
Our current staff have internationally recognised expertise in the areas of Comparative Politics, Parties and Elections, Policy Studies, Public Policy, Environmental Politics and Policy, and Political and International Theory. We also specialise in the politics of a wide range of countries and regions of the world, especially Britain, the European Union, Western and Central Europe, Eurasia, the Balkans, the USA and the Middle East.
Take a look at our video presentation, which talks you through an introduction to Politics, including topics such as the programme structure, information on modules you will be studing per year and additional opportunities available to Politics students. We hope this presentation will give you valuable insight into studying at Keele:
