Our highly ranked Politics department offers an exciting range of programmes at our Penryn Campus in Cornwall. Publishing in world-leading outlets, we conduct research on a wide range of fascinating issues such as extremist propaganda, authoritarian systems, climate change politics, and use cutting-edge methods such as brain imaging, big data analysis, and experimental approaches. From the rise of emerging powers to the fundamental threat of climate change, from unprecedented challenges to international institutions to the re-emergence of nationalisms, today’s political environment is ridden with uncertainty and anxieties. Studying Politics and International Relations has therefore never been so timely.
