The School of Government and International Affairs is a research-intensive department that uses innovative teaching techniques to ensure we combine our latest world-leading research into the programmes we deliver.

At SGIA, our extensive research activity reflects a longstanding commitment to embed regional studies expertise within core politics and international studies disciplinary strengths. Each of our research groups, centres, and institutes brings together Faculty and Postgraduate Research students who share an interest in a particular set of related research themes, and each organises regular research activities such as workshops and guest speaker series. The remits of research centres and groups sometimes cut across the boundaries of the academic groups in the School, and across disciplinary boundaries.

Our key areas of teaching cover the wide range of sub-fields in Political Science and International Relations in which we deliver expertise, including government, political theory, political economy, and international relations with a depth of specialisms in regional expertise, covering multiple regions of the world such as such as Europe, East Asia, the Middle East and the wider Muslim world, Africa, and America. We welcome a wide range of visiting professors who are experts in their field and regularly work with our students.
