We believe strongly in integrating our ground breaking research with our teaching, and in areas such as Russian politics, politics of the Middle East or international security you will benefit from being taught by a leading expert and author in that field.
We regularly host speakers from the world of Scottish, British and international politics, including MPs and MSPs, American Foreign Service Officers and Government Ambassadors. Additionally, where possible, we encourage and assist students who wish to take up internships with the Scottish Parliament and Government and other bodies.
While politics at Dundee is big enough to have a real international presence, it is still small and intimate enough to offer a friendly and responsive home for students from all backgrounds. This is more than a mere claim - independent surveys consistently rate politics at Dundee as among the best-received programmes in the country.
