School of Social, Historical and Literary Studies

At Portsmouth, the study of politics and international relations explores power -- who has it and how they use it in national and global arenas. This means study and research in topics from globalisation to local governance, from economic integration to war and terrorism.

Institute of Criminal Justice Studies

The Institute of Criminal Justice Studies was founded in 1992 and has since become one of the UK's leading centres for research and course provision in criminology, criminal justice and police studies. With 50 academic staff and more than 1,800 students, the Institute is one of the largest departments of its kind and has become an internationally renowned focal point for the multidisciplinary study of crime and criminal justice processes. It draws together expertise in criminological analysis, applied psychology, police governance and management, victimology, penology, risk, security and international and comparative criminal justice.

School of Education and Continuing Studies

The course is intended for teachers, trainers, lecturers and instructors in the state, private, public, commercial or voluntary sectors of education and training who aspire to senior management positions. Many graduates of the course attain senior management positions in education or training organisations.
