Message from the Head of School

The School of Social and Political Science is working hard to address the challenges for our learning and teaching activities and research in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. Covid-19 has generated challenges for individuals, societies across the world, and for work and wellbeing. Recognising the everyday realities of physical distancing, our teaching will be accessible, adapted and updated due to the ongoing impact of Covid-19.

Join us on the journey to critique this ever-changing world and build futures in a post-Covid-19 society. Read more about how our staff are carrying out important Covid-19-related work and adapting to education challenges here.

There is of course another great challenge facing society right now, and I want to make it clear that SPS stands with Black Lives Matter. However, our School must do more to tackle racism in HE - in recruitment, hearing and supporting BAME students and staff, and in how and what we teach. We’re committed to doing this openly and with scrutiny. We’ve made progress but need to do better.

Professor Linda McKie, Dean and Head of the School of Social and Political Science
