Canterbury Christ Church University
European Politics (with Diplomacy Specialism)
The 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.
Core modules include: Research Methods 1, and Critical Issues: Shifting Perspectives (Autumn term); Research Methods 2, and Advanced Research in Politics and International Relations (Spring term); The MSc Dissertation in European Politics and Diplomacy (Spring and Summer terms). Optional modules include: EU Strategic Culture; European Power and Security.
Assessment will be based on a range of methods including: essays; briefing notes; book reviews; portfolios; individual and group oral presentations; action research; political role play; simulations; standard examinations; as well as a sustained piece of academic work in the form of a thesis, all of which take account of two key interdependent aspects:
The acquisition of relevant knowledge and understanding in the area of European Politics; and the development of academic style and practical skills in the area of European Politics and the Diplomacy Specialism.
Accordingly, assessment procedures are designed to test the acquisition and needs of graduate students in terms of their newly attainment and management of broad areas of knowledge and understanding in their chosen subject area, as well as the various transferrable skills by which that knowledge is acquired.
