During a period of significant political upheaval and uncertainty, this is an exciting time to be studying politics. How is power handled and where does it lie?

There are few more interesting and relevant disciplines than that of politics. You’ll explore and make sense of current issues at a national and global level. This will provide you with an invaluable understanding of the world. You’ll learn how to identify and respond to challenges facing contemporary political systems.

We specialise in international and European politics. Our academic staff have particular expertise in conflict, security, international politics, EU politics, British politics, gender politics, populism and radicalism.
