School of Social, Historical and Literary Studies
How do governments get power, and how do they keep hold of it? Where does international terrorism come from? What do democracy, freedom and injustice mean to different groups of people?
Questions like these inform the study of politics and international relations that you will undertake as an undergraduate here at Portsmouth. Whether you specialise in one strand, take both together, or combine with a related subject, you will work toward a stronger understanding of the systems underpinning the political world we live in and their relation to human activity. The range of options available allows you to shape your course to your interests, with a central core that provides the knowledge, skills and political theory to ensure you get the most out of your study while you are here, and to support you in your career afterwards.
Your lecturers will be drawn from active researchers, all members of the Centre for European and International Studies Research (CEISR), so that each unit of study is informed by the most up-to-date thinking available in the field.
