Top 100 worldwide for political sciences
Our globally-recognised government and international relations programs are built on cutting-edge political science research and produce confident, skilled graduates with highly relevant qualifications.
ABOUT THE SCHOOL
For over three decades we have integrated world-class research and teaching into a specialist degree program that is small enough to ensure every student receives the attention they deserve. In the ShanghaiRanking’s Global Rankings of Academic Subjects 2018 our public administration subjects ranked top 75 worldwide and our political sciences subjects achieved a top 100 global ranking. In 2018 our politics and international studies subjects were ranked in the top 150 worldwide in the QS World University Rankings by Subject. We actively influence Australia’s political landscape with public debate and advice to decision makers, and are proud founding partners of the ANZSOG—a non-profit organisation which aims to develop future public sector leaders and promote public administration as a profession.
Griffith Business School offers many opportunities for students to get involved with our community, build professional and social networks, and enhance business skills. We also offer a wide range of scholarships, prizes and awards to assist with the costs of course fees, textbooks, accommodation and living expenses.
Higher Degree Research
We pride ourselves on supporting emerging scholars and actively involving them in the activities of the Department and our partner research centres.
We have over 40 Higher Degree by Research students with a wide range of thesis.
