About

The MA Politics course at Coventry University is designed to give students insight into the ideas, individuals and institutions that shape our world.

Overview

The MA Politics course at Coventry University examines the most pressing issues facing us today including democracy and populism, gender and social change, terrorism and international security. Students are invited to apply theory to real-world events to better understand their own environment and the nature of the global order. Students are given insights into the perspectives and motivations of policy and decision makers, as well as the impact of policy on individuals, communities, social movements and states.  

Career prospects 

Graduates in Politics develop advanced critical and analytical skills, the ability to make judgements under conditions of uncertainty and inter-cultural awareness. These skills are transferable to a wide range of career paths including government and civil service, diplomacy and foreign service, campaigning and advocacy, social research, journalism and media, public services, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), international organisations, the culture industry and education.

The course includes embedded professional development with a Chartered Institute of Management accredited qualification to boost your employability and give you a competitive edge in the job market. This module aims to provide practical leadership skills to critically evaluate and develop solutions for complex, inter-related, multi-faceted issues that you will experience in the workplace.
