The Department of Politics and International Relations offers two Politics joint-school degrees: you may choose to study Politics alongside History or apply to Philosophy Politics and Economics (PPE) to study Politics in conjunction with Philosophy and Economics. Regardless of the programme chosen, all first-year undergraduates on Politics degrees are introduced to major theoretical ideas about politics, examine how governments and institutions function in practice and attend a series of labs where they will use quantitative methods to investigate political questions. The second and third years of both degrees offer opportunities for further specialisation as students choose papers and build their degrees around their interests.
The admissions deadline for programmes starting in Michaelmas 2020 has now passed. You can find out more about 2021 entry on the University's website.
