Administrative history

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.
