Politics topics include theoretical perspectives in politics systems and governance, international relations, political philosophies and political economy.Students also examine contemporary issues in global studies, in particular the USA’s role as a hegemonic power and current and future challenges to its pre-eminence.

For history, an understanding of methodology and intensive study of primary and secondary sources is developed by Depth Studies, while Comparative Studies explore areas of historical concern across more than one country and culture.
