Dual Bachelor in Political Science and Sociology
olitics surrounds us and influences our lives from the moment we are born. Health, education, housing, transport, safety… and an infinite number of social and economic relations are affected by political decisions, players and institutions.It is not surprising that politics has always been a constant subject of study, intellectual concern and public debate. Everyone speaks and gives an opinion at some moment about politics and political decisions. We are constantly bombarded every day in the media with comment, opinions and information about one or other aspect of political activity (national, regional, local or international) and these often form part of our own private and family conversations.
The degree in Political Science presented here consists of 4 years of study and aims to produce specialists and professionals equipped to understand and analyse politics in all its complexity with rigour and depth. It also aims to provide students with practical skills and tools in order to research, evaluate and improve political activity and to design and manage the public policies of different government and administration authorities.
The course content incorporates a basic, coherent nucleus of compulsory subjects relating to Political Science which shape the degree’s identity (political analysis, performance and political players, Spanish politics, comparative politics, political representation and electoral analysis, political theory and ideology, politics and communication) and also offers an attractive range of methodological, legal, economic and sociological subjects which complement the basic formation of the political scientist.
