MA Political Theory
Graduate Taught (level 9 nfq, credits 90)
As a crucial part of understanding our human condition, political theory has always been held to be a valuable activity. More recently, however, changes in contemporary societies have made such systematic thinking about politics indispensable to understanding and participating in the life of our own state and a newly global world.
- Political theory addresses the more immediate practical concerns of politics and policy that are of concern to governments, the media, civil society groups and individual citizens.
- Combines a rigorous approach to analysing these problems with an imaginative search for solutions.
