M.A.-European Governance and Politics
This programme will familiarise you with key debates about new patterns of governance in the European Union, and with the EU's impact on current and future member states (Europeanisation). The programme combines core elements in the study of the European Union with an innovative focus on Europe beyond the borders of the EU as well as choice from a broader range of options.
Students will be encouraged to explore their own particular concerns through the options offered and in particular during the dissertation.
The programme is based on the strengths of the Department of Politics. The Department has one of the largest groupings of specialists in such a department in the UK. There are already well-developed research
activities on the subject of the programme (seminars on multi-level governance between Politics and Law as well as a reading group) and a major research council-funded project on multi-level governance involving four colleagues in Politics. These activities are embedded in the Politics Department´s research culture and encompass postgraduate students as well as staff. Six Politics academics work in the Centre for International Policy Research (CIPol), a major focal point in the research strategy of Politics. The Department of Politics was rated 5* in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) and had the equal top profile in politics and international studies in the 2008 RAE.
