Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS), University of Cambridge

The establishment of the Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS) in January 2009 provided a new institutional focus at Cambridge for teaching and research on politics in all its dimensions; international and comparative, theoretical and empirical, abstract and practical. POLIS is one of three departments in the Faculty of Human, Social and Political Science, together with the Departments of Sociology, and Archaeology and Anthropology, and is one of nine departments which constitute the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. At the postgraduate level the Department offers an MPhil in International Relations and Politics, an MPhil in Public Policy, and a part-time MSt in International Relations. It also has a thriving PhD programme , which admits twenty students a year, and is linked to the ESRC doctoral training centre. More than 200 students from over 30 countries are currently enrolled on graduate programmes. Cambridge University
