During this European Studies - European Society programme from University College London (UCL) you will develop discipline-specific skills and regional expertise, while the interdisciplinary programme structure encourages you to think across boundaries, gaining an expansive overview of the continent.
The European Society pathway aims to provide a solid theoretical grounding and encourage students to look at different types of historical and social-scientific inquiry. It offers the opportunity to experiment with new ways of integrating the interpretation of literary texts, art and film in their study of history and society.
Teaching and learning
Key aspects of European theory and culture are taught through participation in lectures and seminars. Through feedback sessions on presentations and essays, students are encouraged to reflect on, and improve, their own work. Assessment is through a combination of coursework essays, unseen written examinations, and the dissertation.
Optional qualifications: This degree is also available as a PG Diploma with fees set accordingly.Careers
MPhil and PhD degrees often follow on from a Master's programme; both the Taught and Research pathways of the MAs offered by the Centre for Multidisciplinary & Intercultural Inquiry (CMII) are intended to allow this type of progression, as well as standing as degrees in their own right. Outside academia, potential careers may include politics, business, commerce, teaching, public relations, or journalism.
Graduates of this MA have used their extensive knowledge and understanding of European institutions, policies and society to obtain positions within the European Union. The high level of interdisciplinary training and research skills offered by the programme have equipped others for positions as researchers in UK and European universities, museums and non-governmental agencies. The emphasis on written and verbal communication, and collation and presentation of research and analysis has provided transferable skills for the fields of accountancy, law and PR.
