- LSE is ranked fifth in the QS World University Subject Ranking 2021 for Politics and International Studies and is one of the oldest and largest international relations departments in the world.
- We offer a wide and diverse range of theoretical and empirical research and teaching.
- We provide an exciting and broad range of extra-curricular activities to enhance and support students’ exposure to a variety of international relations focused experiences.
For even more reasons we encourage you to watch the following video where Dr George Lawson answers the following questions: What is international relations? How does the BSc IR programme differ from others in the department and the School? What specific subjects are covered in the core course and options? What kinds of backgrounds do students on the course have? What kind of jobs do they get?
You can find out more about us as a department on our webpages.
