University of York
Environment and Politics
This doctoral programme involves interdisciplinary research that cuts across two disciplines. Students are jointly supervised by a member of the Department of Environment and the Department of Politics. Both Departments have strong research cultures.
Admission to the PhD programme is normally based on good performance at the BA level (usually a 2.1 or a 1st) and a Masters degree, at least one of these in a social science related subject. In unusual cases where the student has a 1st in a social science subject in their BA, admission to the programme may be allowed on that basis. In exceptional cases the department may consider students from non-social science backgrounds, where the student can clearly demonstrate equivalent experience and knowledge and this is supported by academic references. Applicants whose 1st language is not English may need to satisfy language requirement.
A range of scholarships and studentships are available at postgraduate level. Some scholarships are funded by the University (such as the York Master's Opportunity Scholarship) and some are funded by Research Councils, alumni, businesses and charities. Please check with the provider for details.
