Our interdisciplinary research brings together scholars who work within and across the subject areas of Religious Studies, Philosophy, and Politics and International Relations.


We offer a broad range of options for students to study Politics & International Relations at Lancaster.

Lancaster allows you to study philosophy, the oldest academic subject, in a flexible way.

Philosophy is the careful, critical, and reasoned engagement with a wide range of fundamental questions about human existence; about art, politics, justice, right and wrong, truth and knowledge, faith and reason.

Read more about Philosophy Degrees here.


Religion has become increasingly visible in society, manifested in debates around, for example; the wearing of veils in Islam, the legitimacy of homosexuality in Christianity, the place of atheism in the West, the nature of religious violence and terrorism, the relation of religion to politics, and the role of the media.

Politics Taster Webinar: Can Universal basic Income Make a Nation Healthier?
Wednesday 16th December, 4.00pm to 5.00pm

Evidence suggests that a person’s health is heavily influenced by social and economic environment.

This webinar outlines this case, arguing that UBI can improve health by reducing poverty, increasing predictability of income and reducing inequality. As the Government is now committed to preventing, rather than just treating ill-health, the webinar examines the impact the policy might have on public budgets and whether the policy is feasible.
