Canterbury Christ Church University

Politics and International Relations

The programme has a strong interdisciplinary research culture, drawing on politics, law, international relations, sociology, philosophy, and geopolitics; key areas of research are political philosophy, radical politics, political engagement, international organisations, regime analysis, European politics, environmental politics, prime ministers, and political leadership. Research degrees differ from taught degrees in that most of the students' time is devoted to the individual pursuit of a research project. The students work independently carrying out research, experimentation and data-gathering in their chosen field. However, each student's supervisors will provide close support and mentoring throughout.
