Postgraduate Masters Taught and Research
The School has a strong and still expanding programme of Masters degrees which offer opportunities for the advanced study of aspects of European culture, European Union, European history, international relations, political economy and politics (broadly defined), as well as the theory and practice of translation. These are studied via seven Masters programmes, which are taught by academics who are internationally-recognised for their expertise and scholarly publications.
- MA European Studies
- MA Translation Studies
- MSc Econ European Governance and Public Policy
- MSc Econ International Relations
- MSc Econ Politics and Public Policy
- MSc Econ Welsh Government and Politics
Masters teaching is mainly conducted through seminars, which foster an environment in which students and staff can develop a good working relationship with each other, and which enables in-depth academic debate and discussion in small, relatively, informal, groups.
Each Masters programme is assessed through a combination of Module-based essays or exams at the end of the autumn and spring semesters, and then a supervised research Dissertation written during the summer, on a topic chosen by the student.
The externally-recognised academic quality of the School’s Masters degrees, and the many transferable skills they impart, ensures that our postgraduates are highly attractive to employers in a wide range of careers and professions.
