Street protests, local elections, European treaties, parliamentary debate, local council decisions, industrial conflict – all are part of the everyday life of politics. Politics is about how we figure out what our society should look like. It is also about power and inequality. At NUI Maynooth, you will explore the way politics shapes our lives, the different forms that politics takes, and how politics is organised in different countries. As a student, you will examine the nature of active citizenship, international issues, and the tensions between democracy, power and injustice. You will explore Irish and international politics, including a focus on Europe, the US, or Latin America. You will also have an opportunity to carry out research into political life, developing analytical and presentation skills.


Applicants are required to have a minimum of six subjects in the Irish Leaving Certificate with two Higher Level papers at C3 and four Ordinary or Higher Level papers at grade D3
