About

Politics and International Studies at Loughborough University is a world-leading centre for research and study into many areas of modern politics and history.

Overview

Politics and International Studies at Loughborough University is a vibrant and convivial centre for advanced research. Our aim is to stimulate innovative research that has the potential to transform academic and public debates.

We conduct research in contemporary politics and political theory, early modern and modern history, international organisation, and critical security studies. Most of our research falls between the humanities and the political and social sciences, but we also produce a substantial body of interdisciplinary work, notably in the history of ideas, radical movements and activism, in gender politics, international history, and international politics, government and governance, art and politics, religion and politics, media studies and history, and digital humanities.

Our focus on research is reflected in the results of the latest Research Excellence Framework (2014), where Politics and International Studies was ranked in the UK top 10 for research intensity.

Politics and International Studies is a supportive environment for postgraduate study, and we foster strong research links between academics and students.

As a student in Politics and International Studies, you will participate in seminar planning and receive tailored advice on fellowships and publication.

Our graduates have secured prestigious positions in academic institutions, including the Wiesenthal Institute in Vienna, Exeter University, Queen’s University in Belfast and University College Dublin. Others have pursued careers in academic publishing, with international and UK-based campaign groups and civil society organisations.
