Political Studies Vision Statement


Vision Statement: Political Studies 2019

Political Studies is an inclusive and engaged Department, recognised internationally for our cutting-edge research and innovative teaching & 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 undergrads and enhanced supervision for postgrads.

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.
