University of Warwick
Politics, International Studies, Liberal Arts and Sociology are separate subject fields but with a shared instinct for helping students to know more about their social world and how they might want to take their place within it. They are subject fields committed to a critical and questioning approach to the social status quo, presenting students with additional personal resources to challenge the assumption that the social world must always look as it does now. This stream will provide students with insights on what it will be like to study on all sorts of social science, arts and humanities degree programmes. Students on this stream can expect to be provided with academic content that will take them significantly beyond their school curriculum. We aim to provide an integrated, all-round learning experience, using the theme of ‘Colonial Hangover’ to pose a series of questions about everyday life that currently remains underrepresented in the A-level syllabus. Students will be asked to think about how their lives intersect on a day-to-day basis with the legacies of the British Empire, and how past and present go together in the lives that they are trying to create for themselves.
