Politics affects us all. It is about the ability to change lives, the big ideas that shape our social, economic and political worlds, and how these ideas become policies. It is about how we are governed, about politicians, parties, elections and governments, but, perhaps more importantly, it is also about the relationship between each one of us as individuals and as members of society, communities, and organisations. Politics at Aberystwyth seeks to understand the institutions and practice of politics as well as the ideas and concepts that make up the big political issues of our time and shape our daily lives: ideas of justice, freedom, power, citizenship, democracy, and the morality of political decision-making.

We assess our students through essays, reports, examinations, book reviews, learning logs and presentations.

We encourage our students to take part in the Crisis Games, which is a twice-yearly residential course away from Aberystwyth. Crisis games have been based on humanitarian crises, the Northern Ireland peace process, Iran’s nuclear ambitions, the US presidential election, an Arctic environmental disaster, war between Russia and Georgia. The Crisis Games will allow you to learn about aspects of international politics which cannot be taught in lectures and seminars, especially the constraints which political leaders face in responding to various crises.
