Who we are

New political movements are springing up around the world, challenging the existing order and providing rewarding fields of study for academic researchers. Our academics are at the forefront of research on these developments, and results of their work directly feed into their teaching to complement lectures and seminars on political science and political theory.

Politics and international relations can be studied as single honours or combined with other subjects. A comprehensive programme of postgraduate research and taught degrees builds on the skills and knowledge gained at undergraduate level.

A distinguished history

Founded in 1964, we are one of the leading politics and international relations divisions in the UK.
