This programme allows you to engage with the study of Europe from a variety of perspectives; the domestic, the regional/supranational, and the global. It draws on theories of international relations, comparative politics and European integration, as well as dealing with some of the biggest practical political challenges facing Europe today. It allows you to develop your knowledge of European politics by engaging with subjects that stretch beyond the European continent, by focusing, for example, on international security, development or globalization; or alternatively by specializing in European Studies.
