Third Year

Welcome to Third Year Politics!  This year there are modules with a distinctive International Relations feel, also there are modules on Political Violence, Global Governance, Nuclear Politics, Moral Psychology and many more.  We think it will be a thought provoking year and that many of you will take the opportunity to do a piece of undergraduate research work on a topic that interests you.

Lectures begin on Monday 12th September 2016. 

There will be an information session on Third year modules on Wednesday 14th September 2016 at 10am in Boole 6 so come along and hear Lecturers talk about the modules they are offering. Try and go to as many lectures as you can to get a feel for where your interests lie. You will have a number of weeks to change your module choices.
