With some 30,000 students the Manchester Metropolitan University is the largest non-federal institution of higher education in the UK. Taking its present name in 1992, it comprises a number of formerly separate elements, some of which have their origins in the late-nineteenth century and in the earlier decades of the present century. For example, politics has been taught, studied and researched here for over thirty years.
The Department of History, Politics and Philosophy is located in purpose built accommodation opened in 1996 – part of the University’s central complex known as All Saints. It is close to the city centre, offering easy access to leisure, recreation, cultural and shopping facilities in this one of Britain’s largest and most important conurbations.
The Department of History, Politics and Philosophy is one of six departments within the Faculty of Humanities, Languages and Social Science, which, in turn, is one of the seven faculties within the MMU. The Department incorporates the Centre for Research in International Security, supported by the Faculty
