Alex is intrigued by the concept of justice, and his BA Politics degree has helped him realise that it's an issue that's fundamental to politics, and equally relevant to any society, regardless of time or space.
“I'm fascinated by the world and how it works, and that's why I chose to study Politics at York. It's a multi-layered subject area that not only considers how power relationships operate, but how they should operate. I've particularly enjoyed listening to the various arguments about why we need fairer political systems, and what these systems look like.
I've also learned a lot about areas I was previously unfamiliar with, such as political economy and international relations, but my highlights have been the engaging discussions about political and social justice.
There's a rich history of debate about justice, and what it means, that dates from ancient political philosophy through to the present day. It's an issue that's fundamental to politics, and equally relevant to any society, regardless of time or space.
My time at York has been just as memorable outside the classroom. There's a buzzing social life around the university, and I've enjoyed making new friends and meeting like-minded people through my course, living arrangements, and extra-curricular activities.”
