Why study Politics and International Relations at Manchester?

Politics and International Relations involves the study of power and wealth, political institutions, their processes, those that play a part and the ideas that change the world.

As one of the largest politics departments in the UK, Politics at Manchester is structured around three core areas: comparative politics, international relations and political theory. This structure extends across everything we do,
from undergraduate teaching to top-level research.
