Understand how society works and how it came about

Studies in Modern History or Politics and International relations will help you build a rich perspective on the evolution of today's complex world, and apply your learning to real-time problems.

We encourage our students to think in diverse and interdisciplinary ways – combining insights from politics and international relations, history, sociology, law, anthropology and economics.

We offer several research pathways for upper-level students to conduct in-depth and industry-focused research.
