Course content

This course provides an in-depth analysis of government and policy making in Europe. You will study both EU institutions and the politics of member states which will allow you to develop your understanding of the relationship and interaction between them.

You will complete one core module - Politics of European Integration - then choose three option modules which, along with your chosen dissertation subject, allow you to focus on your preferred specialisms.

The programme will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to understand the debates surrounding European integration and European Union activities, and how these affect national politics in member states. You will develop your ability to employ both theoretical and empirical tools in order to analyse politics in the EU. The course will develop the transferable skills you need to work effectively within a complex world where traditional concepts of national state sovereignty are called into question.

Our course will provide you with invaluable insights into the functioning of political life in the EU that will assist you in a broad range of professions, including diplomacy, government bodies, international organisations, lobbying, teaching, journalism, the media and commerce and business.
