Politics is about struggle, and how we make decisions in society—who gets what, when and how. It is also about the conflict of ideas and values, from the local community to the nation and internationally. Politics matters!
Politics is everywhere, and studying politics will introduce you to the concepts, theories and information you need to make sense of it.
At Massey, politics is taught in an interdisciplinary programme, bringing together political scientists, economists, philosophers, historians and sociologists. Since the programme is small, you will have regular and close contact with academic staff.
Politics is a major and minor subject in the Bachelor of Arts and can also be taken in a certificate or diploma programme. At postgraduate level, Honours, Masters and Doctorate qualifications are available.
Postgraduate study inquiries please contact Associate Professor Grant Duncan
Please contact the programme coordinator for other queries.
