Research proposals are welcomed in the Department, and we particularly welcome proposals reflecting the current focus of each branch of the Department or the special interest of any members of our staff.
Politics and International Relations at Lancaster is innovative, interdisciplinary and post-disciplinary. Research proposals reflecting this are especially encouraged from those seeking to undertake MPhil or PhD research degrees.
We have a strong approach to supporting students, whether through reading groups, research methods study classes, opportunities to present and review research projects or links with external presenters. There is good support from the library and a vigorous seminar programme. We enjoy good working relationships with related departments and centres, and joint supervision arrangements are possible.
