School of Geography, Politics and Sociology

Teaching programmes at the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology (GPS) encompass single and joint honours undergraduate degree programmes, a suite of taught Masters programmes, and postgraduate research programmes.

The School’s research is world-renowned and internationally-oriented, and builds on the strengths of its constituent disciplines of geography (both human and physical), political science and sociology. Much of our research is inter-disciplinary, and engages in a variety of ways with public policy concerns and debates. Two leading research centres, Policy, Ethics and Life Sciences Research Centre (PEALS) and Centre for Urban & Regional Development Studies (CURDS), are also part of the School.
