Political Science has been studied at Lund University since 1877. Today, Lund University's Department of Political Science combines old traditions with modern research and education.
In recent years, the department has been very successful in competing for external research funding. Our research groups dedicated to central themes such as democratisation, globalisation, diplomacy, peace and conflict studies and environmental policy are at the forefront of international research.
