Goverment and Politics A Level at The Sweyne Park School

Course description

We are living in a world that is rapidly and constantly changing. Politics and the role of government underpin much of this change, from the implementation of new laws, giving or limiting rights and freedoms, to the complete upheaval of entire political systems. By exploring the fundamental structure of our own government as well as discovering the ideologies that form the foundation of political theory, we can understand the complex nature and impact of these changes to the 21st century.
