POLS modules and pre-requisites

With all of our modules, it is assumed students are able to read and evaluate material critically and analytically, and students will be required to build and defend arguments (with evidence) from various viewpoints, both as part of seminar participation and as part of their coursework.

The majority of our modules do not have pre-requisites, however there are exceptions/recommended preliminary reading so please check the individual module pages for details.

How to register for POLS courses

Students should register for modules on Portico asap and no later than by the end of the first week of teaching. Spaces are limited and priority will be given to students registered in the Department of Political Science. By checking on Portico students will be able to know by week two of teaching if their space on the module has been approved. The department will do its utmost to ensure as many students as possible are accommodated on the POLS courses.  Students should ensure they attend classes from week one of teaching even if module selections have yet to be approved on Portico.  Priority will be given to students attending class from week one of teaching.
