Our Politics department is a place to discuss how the world works, and how to change it. We explore a subject that crosses boundaries, from media to management, the environment and international relations.
We offer courses that prepare students for life beyond university, with the opportunity to pursue internships, work placements, and visits to Brussels, Paris and other international centres.
Our curriculum is delivered by leading academics in their field. We address the issues that make the world tick, such as the negotiation and bargaining process of politics, democratic representation, and security issues across countries and nations.
We tackle issues that matter today, such as counter-terrorism, hate speech, and electoral management and administration. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework ranked 70% of our politics and international Relations research as world-leading or internationally-excellent.
