Government and Politics
The AS course focuses on the key structures of British government and deals with contentious issues such as our voting systems, the role of the House of Lords and our entry to Europe.
In the second year of the course, we look at US structures of government and political issues, such as how democratic their electoral processes really are. Finally we make interesting judgements on whether America is actually more or less democratic than Britain.
