The study of politics will enable you to respond innovatively and proactively to the problems and challenges of the political environment, in particular those of Africa and South Africa. Studying politics will provide you with training for career opportunities in politics in general, political reporting for the printed press, radio and television, research for academic institutions, NGOs, and political parties. It will also prepare you for a career in the diplomatic service, international offices of government departments such as Trade and Industry, the security community such as the SANDF and the National Intelligence Agency, or with international and regional organisations such as the UN (as well as UN agencies such as UNESCO) and the European Union, or international non-governmental organisations such as the World Economic Forum. A degree in politics will also prepare you for a career in political consultation for both local and international firms such as Anglo American.
