The Department offers a range of courses in International Relations, Comparative Politics, South African Politics, Political Theory, Political Economy, Public Policy and Public Administration.
Combinations of these courses can be taken towards our major in Politics and Governance.
Courses (except first year courses) are also available as electives, subject to course prerequisites being met. They are also available to Study Abroad students subject to Head of Department approval.
A number of new courses are being introduced from 2016-2018 and other courses are being phased out. Please check the current course lists for the year of registration before attempting to register for a course.
