Government and PoliticsAt 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
What is Government and Politics?
The Greek philosopher Aristotle argued that politics is the ‘master key’ which unlocks the mysteries of human social life. When most people think of politics, they think of party political broadcasts, questions in the House of Commons and photo opportunities for the Prime Minister. All of these are part of modern politics but they are only a part of what students study on the course. At DLD we focus on three key aspects of politics: power, ideology and world order.

I have found studying Politics at DLD really interesting and stimulating because it allows us to see what’s happening in the world from different perspectives and points of view. Moreover the various topics are linked to the real world, so the knowledge we acquire is a tool that is useful outside the classroom. The way in which Politics is taught at DLD allows students an opportunity to voice their opinions, and class discussions and debates are dynamic and engaging.
