Between them, those teaching on this pathway cover a wide variety of fields of interest: from the major debates in contemporary political philosophy (around topics of rights, justice and political morality).
Teaching and learning
Part-time students complete the The Political Science - Political Theory Pathway (Research Route) course at The University of Manchester over two years. There are no evening or weekend course units available on the part-time route.
You must first check the schedule of the compulsory units and then select your optional units to suit your requirements.
Updated timetable information will be available from mid-August and you will have the opportunity to discuss your unit choices during induction week with your course director.
A number of our recent graduates have gone onto undertake a PhD in political theory. Others have gone into careers that require advanced research skills in areas such the civil service, think-tanks and the public, private and voluntary sectors.
As a School of Social Sciences postgraduate at Manchester, you will have access to a wide range of careers support tailored to your career or further study.
