School of Social and Political Sciences



Staff in the School have extensive experience of designing, managing and delivering high quality, vocationally relevant courses. It is our aim to provide students with good employment prospects and to equip them to become lifelong learners. 

The School has links with higher education providers in a variety of countries and, for some programmes, it is possible to study abroad for a period. In addition, we attract a variety of external visitors each year, both from the UK and overseas. We also organise annual trips abroad for students, e.g. to the United Nations, and we encourage an active alumni association of Social Science Students.

We look forward to meeting you, and very much hope that you choose to study with us.

International Study Trips

British Society of Criminology Conference 2019

In July 2019 the University of Lincoln's School of Social and Political Sciences proudly hosted the British Society of Criminology conference. As part of this international event the school set up a 'Vodcast Zone' where delegates could record short videos about their papers and posters throughout the event that were then shared on social media. Here is the playlist of those videos. 

To view all the videos from the event please visit our playlist.
