Course Description​

Are you interested in the political landscape of the United Kingdom and the United States? If so, then this course is for you! This course will give you a comprehensive understanding of the political systems of the United Kingdom and the United States. You will learn about the history, structure, and functioning of each country’s government, as well as the major political parties and issues.

Introducing a course that draws back the curtains on the magnificent stages of two of the world’s paramount political theatres. Commencing with the bedrock of politics, we set the scene for a captivating act on the US Government Constitution, illustrating its vibrant details and nuances.

But as the spotlight shifts, the audience is treated to a mesmerising portrayal of the three pivotal pillars of the US government: the legislative audacity of Congress, the assertive command of the President, and the stern yet just gaze of the Supreme Court. Each segment sheds light on the gravity and grandeur of their individual roles, allowing learners to discern the symphony in their combined governance.

And as the curtain starts to draw, the drama doesn’t wane. Venture into the rhythmic dance of the electoral process and the bold strokes of direct democracy. The grand finale, the comparative approaches section, offers a kaleidoscopic view, juxtaposing the UK’s regal political elegance against the USA’s federal might, prompting a deeper appreciation of their individual and collective magnificence.
