School of Economics, History and Politics
The School of Economics, Politics and History encompasses a range of full and combined subjects in these popular and established disciplines, providing an interdisciplinary context to each subject's own special focus for teaching and research.
The School has an active research culture; staff and students present their findings at international conferences and publish them, as books, in academic journals and as commissioned research reports. Our research interests inform our teaching, with staff publications featuring in the study materials for each course.
In addition to our extensive range of taught courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, we welcome applications to register as supervised postgraduate research students.
We care about our students' achievements and are proud of the many examples of personal success amongst our past students.
