Master's specialisation in Political Theory

Focusing on the interface of theories of the good society, globalisation, legitimacy and power.
Political theory is the soul of political science: it’s not about determining what the facts are but about determining what they mean and what should be done with them. It’s about the genuine and the deceptive arguments used to interfere in other people’s lives and business. We need political theory anywhere where power is used both covertly and openly, where policies are made and where choices are questioned and criticised.
As a political theorist, you will ask what would be sensible instead of what people call sensible. Just a handful of questions you will be asking and seeking the answers to: Is there a moral foundation for national sovereignty or self-determination? How far should tolerance go? What can and should be our ambitions for local community building? When does a political theory become a weapon or a form of power? Can authority ever be legitimate? Do we owe anything to future generations, animals, the global poor or minority groups?
This Master’s specialisation offers students an unprecedented opportunity to learn to assess political values, aspirations and dreams in terms of their desirability and reasonability. You will also discover how political theoretical work can be introduced fruitfully in other relevant contexts. This will enable you to help civil initiatives and governmental institutions, not to mention the public at large by imagining and designing policies and ambitions that are both viable and defensible.

Why study Political Theory at Radboud University

- Our programme is consistently ranked the best Political Science/PT programme in the Netherlands
- The programme has a unique focus on justification and recognition, globalisation and their relationship with power
- Teaching takes place in a stimulating, collegial setting with small groups
- You are encouraged to critically reflect on the staff’s ongoing research in the Nijmegen Political Philosophical Workshop
- We are the conscience of real-world politics and policies and prepare you to interpret and contribute to real-world politics

Career prospects

Graduates of political theory are academics, not politicians. We believe that to be a good policy advisor, manager or administrator, you need to have good research skills. Research is what is going to make your advice be both valid and practical: both sides of the coin of policies are equally important to the political theorists.

Job positions

Our graduates find employment in a variety of settings, including in consulting, national and international diplomacy and EU institutions. They can work as policy advisors, managers and leaders in local, regional and national government, as well as in business, media, NGOs, think-tanks and civic organisations. Quite a few go on to pursue a PhD degree.

Our approach to this field

Don’t rules, laws, commands and regulations always imply a violation of human autonomy? Are they not insults to humanity? Is there a way to escape from power?

Political theory is the key to good and valid politics. It is practice-oriented and should not be confused with political philosophy. Political theory is more than a reflection on eternal truths and the essence of concepts; it makes the difference between knowing and understanding. Compared to classical political philosophy it is more concrete, more interdisciplinary in nature, and sensitive both to the workings of power and the limits of feasibility.

Political Theory at Radboud University focuses on four aspects:
1. Critical understanding of theories of the good society
Of course, just like most Political Theory programmes we take a critical look at the theories of the good society. Who is – but also who should be – included in the theories: families or individuals, distinct people or everyone, animals and environment or humans only, future or only present generations?

2. Globalisation
We focus on globalisation in the broadest sense: the globalisation of people, money, technology and values so that we address global, ecological, intergenerational justice, multiculturalism and agonism. We definitely do not limit ourselves to the dominant redistributive justice discourse.

3. Justification and legitimisation
We start off by justifying and discrediting particular policies by the standards of theories of the good society. But we go further. What values, rules, tests and mechanisms are there to help design and assess political choices? Which are appropriate and when? Are they biased? We will discuss deliberative democracy, Habermas’s domination-free discourse, Rawls’s reflective equilibrium, the agora of agonists like Mouffe and, of course, foundationalism.

4. Power
Power is the mother of all political concepts; it is a concept that is too easily taken for granted or ignored by political scientists, political philosophers and politicians. We recognise that power, ultimately the threat of violence, will always be part of politics and that there will always be a gap between what you think you can justify and what others will embrace. At Radboud University we train students to try and chart where power hides in justification practices, both in political theory and political practise.

The combination of these aspects is what makes the Political Theory Master’s specialisation at Radboud University unique.

The Practice Teacher Award is designed to prepare NMC registered nurses and midwives who are currently employed as Health Visitors or School Nurses and planning to develop their careers in teaching and learning. You will need to be able to demonstrate innovative professional practice in your specialist field in order to be an exemplary role model of practice development.

The Health Visitor Implementation Plan: a ‘Call to Action’ (March 2011) set an ambitious plan to increase the number of Health Visitors by 50%; 6,000 by 2015. This strategy has already led to a growth in the number of training places for Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (SCPHN) students and an increase in demand for practice placements. Those Health Visitors who have been away from practice or who have lapsed registration are also being encouraged to return to practice, and will require highly motivated Practice Teachers to facilitate learning in the practice placements for all these students.

Student Practice Teachers will be prepared for teaching and assessing learning in practice for students on the Specialist Community Public Health Nursing programme (Health Visitor or School Nurse pathway). Applicants will be involved in the development of the practice placement as an effective learning environment for all the team and will have experience as a mentor to pre-registration and other students and community teams.

Visit the website: https://www.canterbury.ac.uk/study-here/courses/postgraduate/practice-teacher-award.aspx

Course detail

The Practice Teacher Award usually runs from February to September and builds on previous learning and teaching qualifications developed for pre registration nurse teaching and learning such as Preparing Facilitators of Learning in Practice or Mentoring courses.

The course prepares you to achieve the NMC Standards for Teaching and Learning in Practice (NMC 2008) and consists of the following commitment;
• 9 days taught content in University
• 12 days working with an experienced Practice Teacher Supervisor and student
• A further 9 days observing inter professional practice teaching with for example social workers or GP trainers and other SCPHN programme linked teaching and learning activities.

Assessment

Assessment is based on reflective portfolio of evidence (4,000 words).

What can I do next?

On successful completion of the course you'll be able to register with the employing Trust as a Practice Teacher (non-sign off) and allocated a SCPHN student. You'll be supported during the following year by an experienced PT in your assessment decisions and on observing further student ‘sign off’ will be able to enter the PT register as a Sign off PT.

Organisations are vulnerable and exposed to threats from malicious or accidental events on a constant basis. In order to be able to manage the impacts of any risks upon an organisation and its assets, there are multiple levels of planning which should be considered. This master's programme will allow you not only to develop an understanding of the requirements for Organisational Resilience, but also to be able to put into place capabilities to effectively manage and respond, and to maintain alignment with wider organisational objectives

Visit the website: http://bucks.ac.uk/courses/postgraduate/management-and-professional-studies/pt/organisational-resilience-pt-1718

Is this course for me?

The MSc Organisational Resilience is designed to meet the requirements of industry and the professionals who are either currently employed in it or who seek to develop advanced capability. There are many currently working in the sector who have long-term experience and are seeking validation and evidence of this through the achievement of postgraduate qualification.

The programme provides an opportunity for advancement to those already employed in resilience roles, for example as security, crisis or business continuity managers or heads of function, who wish to broaden their industry knowledge base and management and analytical skills with a view to enhancing their career prospects. Secondly, the programme is designed to appeal to people with general management roles and experience who are interested in moving into the resilience sector or who have been made responsible for the implementation and management of resilience within their organisation.

Many of the students on this course already work in roles such as risk management, continuity management, or are in the armed forces. This programme is for students who wish to apply academic rigour to their professional capability and development, and will allow successful graduates to be differentiated from and more competitive than their peers who may not have taken such an approach.

What will this course cover?

Organisational resilience requires, because of the growing inter-relationship and blurred boundaries between the various elements, and the constant development of new risks and the need to mitigate them; the development of organisational and individual capability and knowledge across a range of contributing areas and of the organisational behaviours needed to support them. Therefore, this programme is designed to attract and educate those with a specialist interest in the following areas and sub-disciplines:
• security
• business continuity
• crisis and incident management
• emergency management
• disaster response and recovery

All of these components are to some extent complementary and considered to be contributing elements to the understanding and developed capability to devise, plan and manage resilience within organisations. By allowing students to take a holistic approach to the subject matter and to understand the theories that inform it, the course allows them to develop confidence, capability, critical and multi-dimensional thinking at high levels. Current and relevant, the course keeps pace with world developments and the changing dynamics of resilience planning and implementation.

Modules

• Threat, Risk and Impact Perspectives
• Security Management
• Civil Protection, Crisis and Emergency Management
• Business Continuity Management and Perspectives
• Research and Dissertation

Careers

A huge range of businesses need to plan for resilience, so we tailor the programme to suit your particular industry. You can specialise in the areas most relevant to your career.

During the course you'll be able to develop and test theories and plans that will be directly linked to your area of interest or the needs of your organisation. This will create a solid academic basis for further academic research, including a possible PhD.

Is this course for me?

Are you naturally curious and analytically minded? Studying Criminology will open your eyes to the problems we need to solve for society to be safer. You'll find out how we can use research methods to answer important questions and understand the criminal mind.

Most of our Criminology students have graduated from areas such as the social sciences, law and policing. However, the course is designed for anyone interested in taking the next steps towards an exciting career in Criminology.

This course also attracts professionals who want to expand their knowledge in a related field. A better understanding of Criminology is particularly useful if you work within the criminal justice system, local council or government. Examining research and theory will deal with day-to-day problems in the workplace in a more effective way.

Expanding your knowledge

As you learn about the key concepts of Criminology, you'll also examine the sociological, legal and criminal justice theories used to interpret the actions of criminals and the impact on society.

You will study the events of the last 30 years to determine how social, political and cultural motions have shaped our response to recent events.

What will this course cover?

The course reflects the latest policies and methods used within the criminal justice system. You will gain an understanding of the social causes of crime and how these issues can be effectively managed in society.

We will help develop your analytical understanding of the relationship between crime and community. Progressing to more complex issues such as social disorder and social tension, you'll see society from a range of perspectives.

However, there are also opportunities for graduates within social welfare roles supporting vulnerable members of society. You may also wish to work in areas such as mental health support and drug rehabilitation.

Other graduates continue their academic career and conduct social research to expand your knowledge in the area. This could involve working as a research assistant or completing a PhD.

How will you help me prepare for my future career?

By the end of the course, we'll make sure you have all the skills you need to impress potential employers. You'll be confident in applying theory and concept to understand the management of communities.

This course would appeal to students who enjoy performing arts and are keen to consider their wider significance and are open minded to creatively exploring new possibilities and experimenting. Read more
This course would appeal to students who enjoy performing arts and are keen to consider their wider significance and are open minded to creatively exploring new possibilities and experimenting.

Visit the website: http://bucks.ac.uk/courses/postgraduate/arts-and-creative-industries/pt/performing-arts-pt-1718

What will this course cover?

On this course you will explore how the boundaries between drama and dance, performance and life, creativity and work are always shifting. These shifting boundaries mean that performing is very much a process of adaptation: from idea to stage, from voice to body, from research to practice.

You will study innovative, interpretive research methodologies such as video- based examinations and reminiscence workshops, and traditional qualitative methods such as one-to-one interviews and hermeneutics, in order to capture, record and transform narratives, adapt concepts, translate ideas into performance, and performance into ideas. You will also explore a range of performance styles, from documentary and verbatim theatre to forum theatre and devised/ physical theatre and dance.

In particular, the course provides a unique opportunity to explore creatively how the performing arts can be developed as a discipline and applied to the world at large, as a way of thinking and conceptualising business, as an educational tool, as pure artistic endeavour.

In projects led by experienced practitioners, you will use your acting, dance and devising skills to look into creative processes beyond the performing arts.

Beginning with lecturer input and increasingly moving to independent study, the course encourages you to think of the performing arts as both an autonomous art form and as something that can have a range of applications in the world.

The course will conclude with a project led by you, in which you develop either an artistic concept or use ideas explored during the course in a wider social context.

Modules

• Research Skills and Professional Contexts
• Residency and Project Development
• Investigating Creativity
• Approaches to Performance
• Professional Workshops
• Placement and Creative Challenge
• Practical Dissertation/Project
• Written Dissertation/Project

Do you want to help people who are vulnerable to stigma and isolated from society? Our MSc in Psychosocial Interventions covers psychological and social approaches used to manage mental health and improve the way people integrate in society. You'll learn skills and knowledge that will help you make a positive impact on the lives of others.

Visit the website: http://bucks.ac.uk/courses/postgraduate/health-and-social-sciences/pt/psychosocial-interventions-pt-1718

Is this course for me?

We live in a society where mental health is stigmatised. A negative social environment can often make an individual's condition worse and recovery longer. Psychosocial Interventions don't just look at an individual's psychological state but also their social environment. Therefore as well as treating the illness, psychosocial interventions focus on making sure the individual has a supportive environment.

Typically this course is of interest to students who have a degree in the social sciences, nursing or mental health. A background in psychology gives you a useful insight to mental health and research methods but it is not essential.

This course also attracts practitioners in health, mental health and forensic settings who already work with people who benefit from psychosocial interventions.

What will this course cover?

Psychosocial interventions relate to an individual's psychological development and how it affects them within a social environment. The course covers a range of psychological and social approaches. Psychological approaches can be broadly classified into behavioural, cognitive, humanistic and motivational. On the other hand, social approaches emphasise working with families or wider social networks.

The course begins by focusing on broad themes such as motivation, recovery, hope, resilience, and problem solving. You will then cover specific interventions such as cognitive behavioural therapy, family intervention skills and positive psychology. You will also cover forensic health skills, applied research skills and data analysis. In year two you will complete a dissertation in your area of interest.

You will learn about various clinical approaches and learn how to develop creative solutions when dealing with complex issues. By the end of the course you will understand the main concepts, theories and effectiveness of psychosocial interventions.

You'll be able to identify physical and mental health problems, recognise the basic tools needed and how to apply them to the problem.

Attendance and Personal Study

You will be expected to attend 20 days per year at the University and allocate time each week for self-directed study.

Modules

Year One
• Foundations of PSI: Underlying principles, concepts and values
• Forensic Health Skills
• Family Intervention Skills

Year Two
• Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: Skills & Interventions
• Positive Psychology in Practice
• Applied Research Skills
• Data Analysis and Interpretation
• Postgraduate Dissertation

Careers

Our MSc in Psychosocial Interventions teaches you how to make a lasting impact on the lives of people affected by mental and physical illness. We will prepare you to help individuals overcome their challenges.

By the time you finish the course you'll have the ability to put theory into practice. You'll be prepared to deal with complex issues and be able to make effective judgments in a professional setting.

With the ability to critically reflect and problem solve when faced with clinical issues, you'll be ready to apply the theory of psychosocial interventions to the challenges you face from day to day.
