Political, Social and International Studies



Our Politics department is a place to discuss how the world works, the global challenges we face, and how to make impactful changes within local, global, and diverse communities. We explore a subject that crosses boundaries, from media to management, the environment and international relations.

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. Our expert staff have specialism in counter-terrorism, hate speech, environmental politics, activism,cultural and media policy, electoral management and administration, and much, much more. 

We offer courses that prepare students for life beyond university. Across our courses there are opportunities to study aboard, pursue internships and work placements, and work with external organisations on research problems. All powerful CV boosters.

The 2021 Research Excellence Framework ranked 90% of our research in politics and international studies as world-leading or internationally excellent. Both our impact case studies achieved the highest possible rating.
