This unit is critical to understanding the rest of your Pols degree. if you apply yourself in this unit it will make the rest of the political science units much easier for you.

Challenging unit throughout the semester. However, the exam was super easy - don't worry about the 2 essays at all. Some lectures had way too much content to get through in 45 mins.

Really well organised, lectures were always relevant and had perfect amount of detail. Would recommend.

An interesting unit that has changed a lot in 2017. The new assessments are less relevant to the exam and the absence of a textbook means readings can become disjointed.

Interesting subject

This unit covers a lot of interesting content that creates a basis for further study in theoretical and comparative politics. Personally, I think that a first year unit such as this could show more structure to encourage students to pursue further research and understanding. That is arguably not the responsibility of the unit coordinators, lecturers and tutors. As with basically all other units, this unit will be more rewarding the more you venture beyond the required readings.

Great unit, excellent lecturers. 10/10 would recommend!

This unit was overall, really interesting and provides a good basis for any politics student wishing to pursue the subject further. However, be prepared! While the first half of the course has most of the required readings contained within two books, the readings of the second half are a tad more difficult. Not only are they all over the place, but they are very long, and I, personally, found it hard to keep up with even the bare minimum of what was required. This also has an impact on the tutorials, which are conducted in the form of a group discussion where it is expected that everyone will join in and contribute. If you don't keep up with the readings or aren't good at speaking up (which was pretty much the problem I had) don't expect to get too much from the tutorials. Doing the readings and making notes based on the topic of each tutorial will definitely help though. As well as this, the lecturer who presents the lectures on Europe, Britain and Australia during the latter part of the course is abysmally boring and hard to pay attention to. The content is definitely interesting, but in comparison to the people who present the segments on Liberal philosophy and Liberalism in America, I would say those lectures were a major let down. I would definitely recommend watching them in person if you can, just for the sole reason that it's easier to pay attention to the lecturer if you're actually there. Other than those points, if you're willing to apply yourself to this unit, you'll find it a very fascinating subject. It certainly opened my eyes to the philosophies behind the systems we use and I got a lot out of it.
