Political Science (European Politics and Policy)

The programme combines analytical and conceptual rigour with topical subjects relating to the governance and policies of the European Union and their impact on the domestic politics of its member states; it also focuses on processes of Europeanisation both within the context of the EU's existing member states, but also on candidate countries and the EU's neighbours; building on a very strong comparative perspective (across Europe and the European Union), the programme offers students a range of compulsory and optional modules with strong areas of expertise in gender and media policies, varieties of European capitalism; nationalism and political violence; and the EU's external relations.
