School of Social, Political and Global Studies
We are a new multi-disciplinary school, which brings together academics in Criminology, Education, International Relations, Philosophy, Politics and Sociology to deliver single and combined honours degree courses, pioneering taught postgraduate programmes and postgraduate supervision with world leading researchers. Our research is internationally respected for its theoretical innovations and its relevance to applications in the real world.
As an undergraduate, you can choose a Single Honours degree. We also offer a selection of Combined Honours degrees with each of our subjects. Our degrees are modular which lets you choose a specialised degree course to suit you and even take modules outside your main subjects that count towards your degree. Postgraduate students can study for taught or research-based Masters courses, MPhil or PhD.
