Dedicated to helping you build the knowledge you need to take the first step in a career you are passionate about.

In such a diverse and uncertain world, you need courses that keep up with the ever-changing economic, social and political phenomena.
At Buckingham, we have risen to this challenge.

Offering programmes at foundation, undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD level, our degree courses cover distinct and varied areas - from development economics and microeconomic policy to political theory, philosophy and cybersecurity, we’ve got you covered.

Whatever you choose to study, all our students will engross themselves in a wide range of countries, institutions and policy issues, helping you develop an appreciation of the differing perspectives offered by the social sciences.

This international flavour, that runs throughout all our humanities offerings, is supported by specialised research and teaching centres, including the Buckingham Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies; Centre for United Nations Studies; Institute of International Monetary Research; and the The Vinson Centre.
