The Department of International Studies recognises the connection between the academic discipline of Politics and the cognate discipline of History. This new programme allows students to understand contemporary political systems in Europe, the Americas and East Asia, whilst also understanding the historical roots of the modern international system.
Politics, involving the study of Political Science and Political Theory, has been at the heart of Buckingham since the University was founded in 1973. The interdisciplinary subject allows students to evaluate political concepts and theories, as well as understanding ‘otherness’ of people and societies around the world.
