Entry requirements

Our standard offer for accepting students onto the MSc in European Politics is a 2:1, preferably in directly relatable subjects within the social and political sciences, including previous study in the area of international relations, although cognate subjects including history, law, comparative studies, or the broader range of sociology and psychology will also be considered providing undergraduate marks obtained are robust enough.

Course content

2016 has been the year of Europe. European politics, and its relations with neighbours near and far, have never been more challenging. Or indeed, more fascinating! But how best to understand Europe, and master its current makeup and future directions?

Our innovative MSc in European Politics introduces you to the fundamental principles of European interaction, and refines your knowledge with specialist classes covering European public and foreign policy.

You will learn in a systematic and engaging way about the origins, evolution and multifaceted character of the European political system, before turning to the Diplomacy specialism, which provides dedicated insights on European power, influence and governance within key national, regional and international structures.

A fascinating and relevant degree, supported in 2017 by two competitively-awarded Jean Monnet Scholarships (£2000 each), and a Jean Monnet Studentship (£2000), as well as the possibility of in-house internships. CCCU graduates in European Politics are well-placed to pursue wide-ranging careers in European international relations, enhanced with an expertise in diplomacy.
