Course Summary

This programme will provide students with invaluable knowledge for understanding and analysing contemporary policy practices of the European Union. This includes not only the theoretical accounts of the European Union’s contested roles in global politics, but also its practical implications in the ‘real world’. The programme relies on modules that take a hands-on approach by engaging European policy practitioners which allows students to explore various elements of policy construction and its challenges, especially as they may inform new approaches to governance. The School of Politics and International Relations has a dedicated Employability, Internships, Placements and Alumni Manager who works with students to develop work-based placements in a range of organisations. Centrally, the Careers and Employability Service can help you plan for your future by providing one-to-one advice at any stage of your postgraduate studies. Students will also achieve PgDip award during this course.

Modules

This module offers an introduction to writing a postgraduate dissertation, which forms a major assessed element of the Masters programme. The dissertation is on a topic that falls within the scope of each student's MA programme. The purpose of the dissertation is to give students the leeway and time to follow and develop their own particular research interests, while receiving guidance from members of staff. Supervision of work on the dissertation is concentrated in the second half of the academic year (spring-summer). The lecture elements of the module offer a general overview of the components of the dissertation, along with identifying methods and techniques for writing a successful dissertation.
