Glasgow's distinguished history of teaching politics began in the 1760s, when Adam Smith gave a series of lectures on justice, police, revenue and arms at the University.
Today we are one of the UK's leading institutions for political studies, with particular strengths in:
- comparative and international politics
- political theory
- politics and media; and
- European politics.
Our teaching is research-led but student centred, which means that if you study with us you can expect small class sizes, the chance to develop and defend arguments in a rigorous and analytical manner, and opportunities to engage in constructive debate.
