Course content

The main aim of the MA in Political Research is to provide students with training in the distinctive concepts, methods, and techniques of the social sciences in general, of Politics in particular, and of the specific branch of the discipline in which their research will be located. This will allow them to pursue doctoral research in Politics.

At the same time, the MA seeks to impart skills that will be of use to graduates in their future employment, whether or not they enter the Politics profession.
