We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion (PPR) is an interdisciplinary department that combines research and teaching in politics, international relations, philosophy and religious studies. We attract and welcome students and scholars from around the world. We offer taught programmes in each of our disciplines, whilst also offering a range of combined programmes that include elements of all our disciplines. Wherever possible we will work with you to support your developing interests and will provide guidance to identify the most appropriate combinations of modules to further your personal development. In addition we also provide one-to-one supervision for independent study projects and offer special subject courses that draw from our research activities. We have a strong, distinctive and exciting research culture. Our interdisciplinary research brings together scholars who work within and across the subject areas of religious studies, philosophy, and politics and international relations. Our areas of research are often linked to organisations outside of higher education, with colleagues in all areas conducting research that contributes to the reshaping and enhancement of policy and practice in active and tangible ways. PPR staff and postgraduate students speak and take part in academic meetings and conferences in the UK, Europe and around the world. We pride ourselves on our lively, inclusive and intellectually active community. PPR staff and students take part in research and reading groups, discussion panels and workshops, and a multidisciplinary departmental seminar series that brings scholars from all over the world to Lancaster.
