Undergraduate study

We offer degrees in both Politics and International Relations as Single Honours, and in a number of Joint Honours combinations with other subjects such as Economics, Modern Languages and Philosophy; and a variety of combined honours degrees where politics or international relations can be taken as a minor subject. We also offer a programme in Politics, Philosophy and Economics (PPE).

Our degree programmes are flexible and combine theoretical study with classic and contemporary political processes.

Student view

"Studying in the PIR Department has been a wonderful experience. It is a young and dynamic department and the lecturers bring real enthusiasm to their teaching. It is extremely rewarding to be taught by active and accomplished researchers who bring the most recent debates into their courses. And the dynamism of the academic staff is complemented by an active PIR Student Society. I thoroughly recommend studying here."
