Teaching & Employability

Research-Informed Teaching

The project informs the teaching of members in a variety of different undergraduate and postgraduate modules across several disciplines, including Politics, International Relations, Area Studies, Journalism and Social Work.

Modules that are directly informed by the research of members include:

NGOs and Social Movements (Angela Crack)

Digital Media and Democracy (James Dennis)

European International Relations in the 21st Century (Wolfram Kaiser)

Politics and Policy in Action (Karen Heard-Laureote)

Negotiating and Lobbying in the EU (Karen Heard-Laureote, Nora Siklodi)

Global Journalism and Human Rights (Susana Sampaio-Dias)

Nation and Identity (Nora Siklodi)

Contemporary Security Challenges (Ed Stoddard)

Placements & Internships

Students are strongly encouraged to apply the knowledge of civil society organisations that they have gained in the classroom to enhance their employability and develop a sense of global citizenship. There are a range of exciting placement and internship opportunities in the civil society sector that are directly relevant to the assessments of the above modules. Examples include the following:

Arms Around the Child (Bobbi Bear), South Africa
Cross over Zim, Zimbabwe

If you are an employer and would like to discuss opportunities for Portsmouth students to volunteer for your organisation, please contact our Student Placements Manager, Alice Hooley: alice.hooley@port.ac.uk
