Why should students choose your subject ? What career opportunities are open for students to follow ?
This is an interesting and relevant subject, which is well regarded by both the more established and newer universities. It combines well with any humanities subject, but also works well as a fourth subject for scientists.
Government and Politics opens up careers in the police, journalism, public relations and local government.
