At DLD you will learn to study politics critically. This means examining how democracy really functions, why political decisions are made by a minority rather than a majority, and how politics in different countries is influenced by international developments. Classes at DLD are tutor-led, but all students will have an opportunity to contribute and participate in class discussions and debates. The course is assessed entirely by examination, and the emphasis is on preparing students to complete the questions confidently and within the time limit. All course notes and materials are provided, but students will be encouraged to purchase study guides and/or supplementary textbooks where applicable.
