Government and Politics at Suffolk One

Course description

Politics is all about who governs us, how we are governed, who has power and how we can change the government and the laws. At AS level you will study British politics and at A2 level you will study American politics. At AS you will look at, and criticise, key political figures ranging from Thatcher to Blair to Cameron. You will see how Parliament works, how ordinary citizens can change the UK’s laws and how the EU is changing the way we are run. At A2 you will look at key political figures such as Obama, Bill Clinton and Bush Jnr and analyse their presidencies. You will understand and be able to criticise Congress, the White House and the Supreme Court.

Politics allows you to be critical of the governments in the UK and USA. It lets you see how they can improve their laws, their processes and their functions. You will analyse the different political theories and ideologies ranging from socialism to conservatism to fascism and see which one you think is most appropriate for society today. You can gain a true insight into how the powerful and influential make decisions that transform your lives and change your futures.
