This programme will give you the ability to understand and evaluate key conceptual debates in European politics and the role of cross-national and comparative perspectives. You will also be encouraged to engage with key contemporary debates in the study of European politics, concerning the relationship between the European and national levels, institutional studies, politics and policies, and the ongoing search for a stable equilibrium in all these areas.
The programme is composed of three pathways. The European Politics and Policy stream provides you with a deep understanding of the EU’s main policy areas. The second pathway, European External Relations, offers the opportunity to focus on the EU’s role in the international system. Finally, the European Practitioner stream not only equips you with an excellent understanding of EU politics and policy, but also allows you to spend three months working in the field of EU politics.
Students across all three pathways will take a common set of compulsory modules (including modules on research methods and European politics and policy). Two further compulsory modules will be taken for each pathway, allowing you to study three optional modules from a range of European and/or international modules.
The programme will also provide you with the skills necessary to design and complete a dissertation or placement project on a specialist topic, including formulating research questions, selecting appropriate methods of data collection and analysis, conducting a literature review and presenting research according to scholarly conventions.
