The politics of devolution

Description

This free course which contains material from the current Open University second level Politics course DD203 Power equality and dissent is pitched at the intermediate level. It should take you about 8 hours to study if you attempt the recommended exercises and make summary notes of its key points. Doing so will allow you to practise the crucial academic skill of summary and prcis extracting the gist of an argument which will be of particular help if you go on to study in related areas: perhaps the related politics courses on the OpenLearn website or the Open University modules from which they come.

Subjects

Sociology | Heritage | Scotland | DD203_1
