Whether we realise it or not, politics has a huge impact on our everyday lives: it’s in the decisions we make, the laws we follow, and the way we’re governed. Not only is politics enduringly relevant, studying it also helps develop key skills such as the ability to interpret and explain complex ideas and form sound arguments with critical judgement.
