School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies

We're a welcoming community that spans many fields, from broadcast journalism to philosophy, public policy and translation studies. But what brings us all together?

We help you think more broadly. We push you beyond your specialist subject, with interdisciplinary research and flexible modules. You'll get a more rounded view of the world, in which language and communication, culture, philosophy and politics blend and interlink.

We help you think more clearly. You'll quickly start shaping your future beyond graduation, exploring internship opportunities, and overseas study. You'll build your employment portfolio, and tap into placements with, among others, NGOs and MPs.

We help you think more deeply. Together, we'll explore global and local questions of society, morality, and cultural politics. And you'll be guided by researchers who are experts in their fields.
