Politics Pathway

Studying a Pathway at UWTSD

For those who have an interest in Politics and are considering working in politics or wish to have a greater understanding of political systems, you can study a Politics pathway alongside certain Single Honours degree programmes.

At a time when the world is faced with political and societal uncertainties, UWTSD's Politics Pathway is a great way of gaining a further understanding and knowledge of political systems, concepts and approaches whilst also studying another humanities subject of interest. 

Students following a Politics Pathway will study 2 modules of Politics each year and 4 modules in the chosen main subject. 

The pathway option is ideal for students who are particularly interested in working within a certain sector and would like to expand their knowledge and skill set. In a world where the job market is increasingly competitive, providing a political approach to a student’s degree gives students the confidence and edge over other graduates vying for similar job roles. 

How do I apply for a Pathway? 

To apply, students will need to apply via UCAS through their main subject area.
