MPhil in Politics and International Studies

The MPhil in Politics and International Studies is a 9 month MPhil with a breadth of topic and diversity of approaches that will be hard to match anywhere else in the world.

Under the guidance of our world-leading professors you will be taught to think critically about history, political discourse and public policy. Your views will be challenged not just by the academic staff but your peers who come from all over the world to study here. You will be supported as you develop your skills and knowledge within our small, friendly department.

The interdisciplinary nature of the course allows you to explore your area of interest both through the taught courses and the dissertation that you determine yourself.

Whilst many of our graduates go on to pursue Doctoral research after this course we also have graduates who have embarked on careers in the media, politics, law, public administration, the civil service, finance, teaching, and the charity sector both in the UK and internationally.
