Following the introduction of student loans and tuition fees, the situation of students and new graduates has changed considerably. Set in this context, Graduate Citizens is a thought-provoking, and insightful look at the current generation of students' attitudes towards citizenship and matters of social and moral responsibility.
Drawing on small-scale case studies of students in two universities, the authors explore students' changing sense of citizenship against the backdrop of recent changes in higher education. It addresses students' approaches to being in debt, the role of their families in providing support and their attitudes towards careers. Questioning the claim that the current generation of students is politically apathetic, this book shows that they are in fact socially concerned with, though distant from, official, mainstream politics. It investigates students' responses to such political and economic phenomena as globalisation and the ever-increasing promotion of market forces.
Graduate Citizens illuminates and explores the links between reforms in higher education, student experience of university and issues of citizenship. It poses questions about the condition and future of citizenship in Britain and discusses the implications for citizenship education.

'For the student of Citizenship and Education this is a valuable contribution to the current growing body of literature in the field ... It is a good and rich source of references in the area, and will be a good springboard for further work.' - Escalate

This wide-ranging and thought-provoking book contains much of interest to

students of the contemporary and historical nature of citizenship, and should also

attract the eye of researchers and students with an interest in theoretical perspectives

on citizenship education. The
