Politics and International Relations

Why Study Politics and International Relations

Politics and International Relations, based in the Department of Political and Cultural Studies, is one of the leading research-led units at Swansea University. We challenge our students to investigate the wide and complex issues arising from how our societies, both domestically and internationally, are organised and how they should be organised. 

Politics is not just about studying government institutions and international relationships it explores different visions for a more just society for thousands of years, and yet still addresses some of today’s most pressing crises and challenges.
