The Department of Government had its origins in the Department of Politics, which was established in 1965. In 1989, the Department of Politics was restructured and expanded to include both a Sociology and a Politics division, the new grouping becoming known as the Department of Government. In August 2004, the Division of Sociology merged with the Department of Geography to form a new Department of Geography and Sociology.
