Changing the name of our school

The School of Government and Society will be changing its name to School of Government in August 2019. 

The proposed change reflects on growing expertise in different aspects of government and governance as one of the larger and more diverse Schools of its kind in the UK.

Both our education and research has a strong focus on all forms of government and governance from local to global. Changing the name to ‘School of Government’ would recognise this shift and focus.

This change does not affect our portfolio of programmes on offer to prospective students.

Students currently studying programmes in the School will not see any changes to their programme modules or degree certification. Those studying programmes with sociology will continue to benefit from the close collaboration the School has with the School of Social Policy.
