Your programme of study

This campus delivered programme gives you some unique combinations and choices when studying International Trade Law and Treat Negotiation. You study all the essential parts to international trade agreements but you have a choice in optional courses to further specialise in Intellectual Property and how that is affected by international treaties, oil and gas law in relation to international trade, Asian and Pacific trade, and arbitration. The Law School is ranked 10th in the UK (The Complete University Guide 2018) and law has been taught at University of Aberdeen since the inauguration of Kings College in 1495.

This programme is highly relevant to current and future events resulting from breakdown of regional agreements with the UK and EU for example and re-negotiation of international trade agreements globally in a volatile global environment for trade internationally. The programme is highly relevant to you if you want to work in top level government and influence policy to assist your respective country to trade successfully around the world. This is a complex but fascinating area with some contemporary history to it in terms of the different agreements available and how these are now managed. There is also a need for skilled law professionals to work in multinational business where international trade needs to continue in order for companies to grow successfully within their supply chain and countries they trade in.

You will learn about the sale of goods to and from different countries in terms of legal agreements, World Trade Organisation rules and regulations and international trade negotiation plus management of international sales and terms. You can also study arbitration to assist in smooth running of your respective company or negotiations. This is an exciting area of international law in which there will be plenty of challenges to apply your skills and training to.

This programme differs in optional course modules from the blended learning programme of the same name by allowing you further specialisms which are highly relevant to government and global business arrangements when trading internationally within their supply chain, sales and manufacturing and service areas or within ideas creation and supply across complex supply chains globally.

Philosophy at Essex takes philosophy back to its roots in everyday existential, social and political issues. Read more
Philosophy at Essex takes philosophy back to its roots in everyday existential, social and political issues. Our radical approach cuts across traditional boundaries, fostering dialogue between different schools and disciplines, and we are one of the few universities in the world that bridges the divide between the two great traditions of Analytic and Continental philosophy.

Our MA Philosophy will provide you with a rigorous grounding in modern and contemporary European philosophy. We have leading expertise in critical theory, phenomenology, German Idealism, nineteenth Century German philosophy, aesthetics, existentialism, contemporary French philosophy, philosophy and psychoanalysis, and medical humanities.

You study modules of your choice, develop your research, writing, and employability skills through an intensive Writing Workshop, and prepare an MA dissertation in your chosen area of research.

Our department is widely regarded as among the very best in the UK, having been recognised as one of the top 10 UK universities for research excellence (REF 2014), and being placed in the top 10 in The Guardian University Guide in 2010, 2011, and 2013.

As an alternative to our more flexible MA Philosophy, you can focus your study on a more specific area by following one of the following pathways:

MA Philosophy (Continental Philosophy Pathway)
All of our academic staff work on Continental Philosophy, including classical German philosophy (Kant and German Idealism), Frankfurt School Critical Theory (Adorno, Habermas, Honneth), nineteenth-century philosophy (Kierkegaard, Marx, Nietzsche), and phenomenology (Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty). On this pathway you choose from a range of specified topics in these areas, in addition to some outside options and a dissertation on a topic in Continental Philosophy.

MA Philosophy (Critical Social Theory Pathway)
We are the leading centre for Critical Social Theory in the UK with five members of academic staff working on the Frankfurt School (Adorno, Habermas, Honneth), contemporary French thought (Derrida, Foucault, Rancière) and issues in Critical Social Theory, such as activist political theory, theory of recognition, aesthetics and politics, deliberative democracy, and the moral limits of markets. On this pathway you study modules on the Frankfurt School and Contemporary Critical Theory, in addition to some outside options and a dissertation on a topic in Critical Social Theory.

MA Philosophy (Philosophy and Art History Pathway)
Drawing on the collaborative and interdisciplinary approach of the School, our new Philosophy and Art History pathway enables students to get a thorough grounding in philosophical aesthetics. You explore issues in aesthetics and their bearing on other areas of philosophy (such as critical theory or existentialism) and Art History (such as aesthetic practices and curating), and profit from the wide-ranging expertise of our staff in both disciplines. On this pathway you study modules on Philosophy/Aesthetics and Art History (dealing, for example, with Art & Politics, Art, Architecture and Urbanism, or Art, Science & Knowledge), in addition to some outside options and a dissertation on a topic in Philosophy and Art History.

Our expert staff

Our courses are taught by world-class academics, and over three quarters of our research is rated “world-leading” or “internationally excellent” (REF 2014), which puts us fifth in the UK for research outputs.

Our open-minded and enthusiastic staff have an exceptionally broad range of research interests, so whatever questions in philosophy catch hold of your imagination, there is certain to be someone you can approach to find out more.

Recent projects and publications include:
-Béatrice Han-Pile and Dan Watts’ major new research project, The Ethics of Powerlessness: the Theological Virtues Today
-The Essex Autonomy Project, a major interdisciplinary project funded by the AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council), which aims to investigate the role of autonomous judgment in many aspects of human life
-Peter Dews’ The Idea of Evil, Polity, 2007
-Béatrice Han-Pile, Foucault’s Critical Project: Between the Transcendental and the Historical, Stanford University Press, 2002
-Fiona Hughes, Kant’s Critique of Aesthetic Judgement: A Reader’s Guide, Edinburgh University Press, 2007.
-Wayne Martin, Theories of Judgement: Psychology, Logic, Phenomenology, Cambridge University Press, 2006
-Irene McMullin’s Time and the Shared World: Heidegger on Social Relations, Northwestern University Press, 2013
-Fabian Freyenhagen’s Adorno’s Practical Philosophy: Living Less Wrongly, Cambridge University Press, 2013

Specialist facilities

-Graduate students have access to desk space in the School and many students work there on a daily basis
-A dedicated German-language course for graduate students in philosophy
-Attend our Critical Theory Colloquium
-Attend the Werkstatt, where recent work on phenomenology is presented
-An exciting programme of research seminars, reading groups and mini-courses that help you expand your philosophical knowledge beyond what you learn on your course
-Access a variety of philosophy textbooks and journals in the Albert Sloman Library and in our departmental library

Your future

Many of our philosophy graduates embark on doctoral study after finishing their MA. We offer supervision for PhDs in a range of fields including:
-Continental philosophy
-Critical Social Theory
-History of philosophy
-Applied ethics

Our graduates have also gone into careers in law, the media, local administration, HM Revenue and Customs, and top jobs in the Civil Service.

Programme description

This programme is designed for students seeking a distinctive and unique perspective on the arts of the Middle Ages. Visual culture, throughout the medieval period, is addressed from a global viewpoint.

The programme combines study of the arts and their audiences in Europe (particularly France, Italy and the Netherlands) and Early Medieval Britain and Ireland with those in non-Christian cultures (the arts of Islamic World, South Asia, Japan and China). The main focus is on issues stemming from considerations of cultural exchange and trans-regional interaction.

One example is the practice of exchanging gifts, its traditions, diplomatic significance and intellectual consequences. The programme will also consider issues concerning pilgrimage and conquest, and will address questions arising from study of the rise of global trade and travel. These embrace such topics as:

  • material exchange
  • shared artistic vocabularies
  • pilgrimage
  • literature and its uses
  • artistic and technological exchange
  • the taste of the exotic

The programme includes the possibility of taking an internship in a museum, public institution or similar organisation. It aims to:

  • introduce you to research in medieval history of art at the highest level
  • open up issues of global cultural exchange for academic debate
  • draw attention to contemporary resonances stemming from study of medieval visual culture
  • prepare students for further scholarly research, or for a career working with medieval objects, images or works of art, in museums, libraries, archives, and other collections

Programme structure

This programme is taught through a combination of small-group seminars and tutorials, one-to-one supervision and private study. You will be examined through coursework and a dissertation.

Learning outcomes

The programme seeks to inform students from three vantage points:

  • an overview of the multiple cultures active within the medieval period
  • a more specific knowledge of the various points of intersection between these cultures
  • an in-depth, expertise in of one cultural area with special emphasis on its interactions with other areas

More specifically upon completion of the course, students should have an understanding of how the relationships and connections between cultures are formed and the way in which a specific culture perceived itself, presented itself, as well as how it was perceived abroad as evidenced both in text and images.

More broadly, it is expected students will gain a more considered understanding as to the question of influence within the context of cross-cultural exchange.

Finally, students are expected to gain an understanding of the theories and methodologies relevant to the study of medieval visual culture and inter-cultural studies.

Career opportunities

Should you be considering advanced study in art history, this programme provides the perfect preparation, as you will have gained both a strong foundation in the discipline and identified a particular area of interest. This study may, in turn, lead to an academic career, or a rewarding position in the cultural heritage field.

Your programme of study

If you are interested in the arts and you would like to monetise or create opportunity from the wide range of art forms, Aberdeen offer a programme which looks at the ways you can do just that and get paid for your efforts. The programme doesn't ask for both an art or business degree before entry but you should have general knowledge of the arts markets in galleries and museums. There are wide ranging galleries and museums internationally, some of which have UNESCO world heritage status and are able to draw in massive crowds, others struggle due to location or subject matter. It is for you to realise how these specialist areas can grow and benefit from visitors and how to draw out the value which makes somebody want to visit a specific attraction or buy a specific genre of art.

Within the programme you also discover the masters of deception within the art world and how forgeries and copies are made of well known works and less well known works within painting, drawing, sketching, sculpture and other art forms made famous by past masters. This is a fascinating world of 'Fake of Fortune' where you scrutinise every piece of evidence to decide. There is certainly a lot of interest in the art world made famous by experts on the BBC in the art world but you are not limited to this area, you can widen your interests within museums and galleries to learn curation and exhibiting different art forms.

The MLitt will appeal to you if you enjoy the visual arts of any kind and you want to embark on and international career in the art trade, heritage sector or museums. If you come from an arts background but want to learn the business side of things and the law regarding art purchase and copyright since origination and sale this is a great way of doing this and if you are from a business background but you have always had interests in the arts you get to learn about art forms, curation, exhibitions and periods of art rapidly.

Your programme of study

Intellectual Property Law is required for a surprising amount of industries across creative, marketing, architecture, all new business in terms of trade marks and brand protection, innovations in terms of new product patents and intellectual property rights, internet businesses including e-commerce,  and many many other organisations and businesses. It is international in its protection with variations upon how the law is interpreted depending upon where you trade. For anyone trading internationally it is essential to know how the law is interpreted in the country you are selling in.

Intellectual property law protection can include a wide range of different levels of protection which include full rights, in which you give all rights for a specific tangible or intangible item with specifications written down to protect your idea, partial rights when licensing to others either long term or short term, creative commons to allow access to the idea and monetisation by a different method or the ability to license at specific times and periods of time, specific tangible products. All companies with a creative component are at risk of infringement from when they start to trade to when they cease business so it is a question of how to manage intellectual property, keep growing and trading and benefitting from the turnover that your creative assets bring into your company.

If you want to specialist in intellectual property law this can be a hugely challenging and rewarding area and you are guaranteed to have no two clients that are alike in terms of needs. Intellectual property law is very closely linked to international trade, contracts, exporting, importing, and extending monetisation of assets. You study the deep issues and challenges of intellectual property law and its application to innovation, creativity, and creative development within a business or organisational context at international level.

Overview

Keen to learn more about the business of maritime? With a rich blend of theoretical knowledge and practical skills, Southampton Solent’s international maritime business master’s programme aims to leave graduates well-equipped for careers in ship management or port operations/management, both in the UK and internationally.

- Students are taught by a team of experienced professionals from a wide range of backgrounds within the maritime and related industries.
- The course is accredited by the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS) and verified by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).
- Students study in the heart of Southampton - a major hub in the UK and European maritime and shipping industry.
- Southampton Solent’s China Centre (Maritime) is key to developing strong industry links in China and the Far East.
- The University has strong international partnerships with a number of maritime organisations and other universities.
- Students previously studying on the international maritime business master’s programme have had the opportunity to experience the maritime industry first-hand during port visits to Rotterdam and Southampton.

The industry -

Shipping is a key link in the global supply chain and accounts for over 95 per cent of all imports and exports. With the growing demand of a global population, levels of international trade have dramatically increased over the last four decades. In the UK alone, this translates to a contribution of around £31 billion for the UK economy and the maritime industry is responsible for one in every 50 jobs. With the world shipping fleet growing at just under four per cent per year and anticipated annual growth in seaborne trade demand currently sitting at three-four per cent, the employment opportunities within the maritime sector look set to expand.

The programme -

This stimulating and intellectually challenging course helps to provide students with the skills and knowledge required to operate successfully within the international maritime industry.

The course has a strong business focus and explores the complex factors involved in the management of ships and shipping operations worldwide. Students will also reflect on the key aspects of maritime law, operations and risk management techniques and look at the impact of international trade on management strategies in the industry.

An important element of the course is the accreditation by the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS). Depending on their chosen pathway, students on this master’s programme may be exempt from some of the Institute’s professional exams. The course is also validated by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).

Taught by a highly skilled team with wide-ranging experience in the maritime industry, the course has been designed in conjunction with key maritime industry organisations to enable you to graduate with the necessary knowledge and work-based skills that will enhance students’ career prospects.

Recently, Southampton Solent University launched the China Centre (Maritime) with the key aim of growing a number of strong links with industry and with maritime universities in China, allowing the University to be at the forefront of international research and global trade developments.

The Master in Arts Management is divided into two operational modules, characterised by a distinct course of study in relation to the city in which it takes place, each involving an examination and a final project. Some of the subjects of the course cut across the modules, while others are specific and unique to each location.

The Master is held in partnership with the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, the MIBAC (Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities) in Rome and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice.

At the end of the course, students will be ready to work in arts and cultural companies and institutions (e.g. museums, foundations, galleries, festivals, auction houses), in the so-called cultural sectors (national and international cultural institutions, profit and nonprofit), in areas related to contemporary art and with large enterprises investing in the cultural market (banks, insurance companies, banking institutions, event management companies, trade fair organisations, art foundations, exhibition production companies, or companies operating in the communication world).

FLORENCE - Design of exhibitions and events
The Florence module focuses on developing specific skills to manage the different organisational phases of a Cultural event: from the design to the identification of partners and sponsors, to communication management and content creation. As a group, with the support of teachers and the course coordinator, students will plan and create one or more cultural events with real clients.

ROME - Art Direction: focus on festivals
The goal of this module is to develop a new approach to artistic heritage management. The Master’s semester in Rome combines the huge culture that the city plays at international level with the vivacity of the backgrounds that characterises its urban culture. With the support of new technologies, students will explore possible cultural convergences that stimulate interest and participation.

VENICE - 1 week Workshop
In partnership with the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, students will participate in a one-week workshop in Venice. They will visit the main institutions and meet the professionals of the Peggy Guggenheim.
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is one of the most important museums in Italy for European and American art from the first half of the Twentieth century. It is located in the home of the famous collector Peggy Guggenheim, at Palazzo Venier dei Leoni on the Grand Canal in Venice.

Increasing international trade and finance is opening up new opportunities for growth of firms, regions and countries. At the same time, it is posing new challenges as the benefits will not be equally distributed and competition is mounting. Strategies of governments and firms need to be constantly aligned to quickly adapt to changing circumstances. In the one-year Master's degree in International Economics and Business you will learn the tools to grasp the complex relationships between firm behaviour and economic growth in regions and countries.

You will use state-of-the-art theories to discover the impact of global trade on economic growth and welfare. You will study global business and focus on the economic influence of firms and institutions. As you develop your skills, you will learn to recognize the forces that shape geographical patterns of economic activity. Also, you will learn to advise firms and governments on how to reap the benefits of globalization and international value chains.

The programme offers four Double Degree possibilities: with Fudan University (Shanghai), the University of Göttingen (Germany), Lund University (Sweden) and Corvinus University (Hungary).

Why in Groningen?

In the programme you learn how globalization is changing our world. What is the role of internationally operating organizations, institutions and policies in economic advancement and in bridging the global development gap? International Economics and Businessis an internationally accredited programme, ensuring a high quality education that meets both the AACSB and EQUIS standards, which only one percent of universities reach worldwide.

Job perspectives

After completing this programme you are a broadly oriented economist with a strong international profile. You are ready for an international career at multinational firms, in financial institutions, consultancy and public agencies. Jobs as market analyst, trade expert, global strategy and policy advisor will suit you well. Because all our programmes are EQUIS and AACSB accredited, which only 1% of universities reach worldwide, your degree will be highly valued on the labour market.

Graduates of the MSc IE&B will be able to take up positions in internationally oriented firms (such as banks and multinationals), international organizations (such as World Bank, IMF, European Union, UN and OECD) and internationally oriented departments of government agencies and policy advisors. The programme is focused on developing the kind of skills and abilities needed by those who work as professional economists and economic advisers.

The MSc IE&B offers a consistent international setting both in terms of content and orientation at high level. Graduates are selected to participate in high level research activities of international organizations (such as the OECD in Paris, Conference Board in New York, and the ILO in Geneva) and national organizations (such as the Dutch Central Bank and The Netherlands' Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis).Our academic staff have strong relationships with international research and consultancy institutes as well as policy advice centres.

Linking education to research and career preparation

Our education is strongly rooted in business practice and society. Right from the start of the degree programme attention is paid to academic research and pre-professional development. Since an analytical and critical mind and problem-solving capabilities are important qualities in any career our students aspire.

In collaboration with external partners we conduct various research projects on e.g. the effects of international trade on competitiveness and labour markets, global value chains, the sources of economic growth at regional and country level and a new architecture for (international) financial systems.
