In the Department of Politics at the University of York, students will enjoy an academic expertise second to none.  Academics of this department boast expertise that spans the discipline – from early modern political thought to contemporary international security and from post-conflict development to global financial governance. 

Student can choose optional modules to tailor the course to their specific interests and rest confident in the fact that the majority of the teaching is done in small groups, where they will get a lot of support and attention.  In fact, annually this department intakes just 12-20 students, and approximately 80% of these students are international, which guarantees a multicultural experience. 

Throughout the year, students can take advantage of regular career focus workshops, seminars and master classes, resulting in a range of important transferable skills, which have been specifically embedded into the curriculum itself, including:

  • Reflective independent learning
  • Communication of complex ideas
  • Interdisciplinary awareness
  • Project and time management
  • Flexibility and ability to manage complexity
  • Networking skills

Final assessments are all essay-based, and everyone will submit a final dissertation at the end of the program.
