Political Studies Vision Statement


Political Studies Vision Statement

Political Studies is an inclusive and engaged Department, recognised internationally for our
cutting-edge research and innovative teaching and learning. Externally, we work
collaboratively with a range of academic and civil society partners, and internally we strive
for a collegial and stimulating working environment.

We are inclusive to students through offering value-for-money modules in a student-
friendly environment that demands the highest standards while providing innovative
learning support for undergraduate students and enhanced supervision for postgraduate

We are engaged through fore-grounding real world issues in our teaching; by preparing
students for careers in civil society and government; and by working in research
collaborations with other departments and NGOs, locally and internationally.

We are cutting-edge through leading internationally-recognised research agendas; by being
innovative in our teaching and learning approaches; and by fostering postgraduate
communities of learning, including links with civil society and government.
