About the division
The Division of Social Sciences comprises a team of research-active teaching staff dedicated to helping students to achieve their full potential and to realise their career aspirations informed by the division’s commitments to social justice and global responsibility. These commitments underpin all our degrees, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and contribute to the development of students’ academic skills and knowledge, as well as their engagement as active and critical citizens. All our undergraduate degrees encourage and support students to undertake a work placement and volunteering opportunities.
The Division of Social Sciences covers research and teaching across Criminology, History, International Relations, Politics and Sociology and while you may have a primary academic identity in International Relations, you should be able to work with the division as a whole in matters like supervision of dissertations, organising research seminars, and occasionally contributing to lectures in modules for degrees other than International Relations. Our teaching and degrees recognise no artificial intellectual separation between the various disciplines taught in the division.
