Careers and employability
NTU has a justified reputation among the UK's universities for the high level of employability of its graduates. While the primary aims of a university course have traditionally been intellectual in nature and specific to the subject(s) under study, NTU realises the importance of the role of higher education in training graduates to move into the labour market. The MA Politics will provide you with a range of ‘transferable skills' which will be essential to employment in a range of occupations, including:
The ability for independent and critical thought
- Analysing and evaluating complex and unfamiliar problems
- Working to tight deadlines
- Presenting your ideas with confidence and clarity both in writing and in speech
- Working and learning collaboratively with peers from a range of personal, academic and national backgrounds.
Alongside providing such transferable skills, we believe that the optional pathway through the Dissertation module will strongly enhance your employability skills and, more generally, the course's engagement with contemporary global issues – particularly those of participation, sustainability and citizenship – will ensure that your knowledge and ‘openness' to the wider world is up-to-date and relevant.
After graduating from the MA Politics, you might decide to continue your studies to MPhil / PhD level and there are a range of such opportunities here at NTU. Graduates will also be well placed to pursue careers and training in a wide variety of professions such as research, politics or public administration.
