Summary

This two-year, full-time programme is taught in the UK, Sweden and Spain and will prepare you for an international career in the protection of human rights.

Our programme has a strong emphasis on professional development, and how human rights principles can be put into practice through policy and active engagement in these issues. This programme is designed for postgraduates who want to make a significant contribution to the human rights agenda internationally with civil society organisations, governments and the public and private sector. You will be exposed to legal, political, sociological, and anthropological approaches to human rights promotion and protection in a globalised world.

Partners in this programme include the University of Roehampton (London, UK), Göteborgs Universitet (Göteborg, Sweden) and Universidad de Deusto (Bilbao, Spain). As well as teaching and research of the highest standards, they offer specialist expertise in human rights law, the rights of indigenous peoples and research methods.

Underpinning the programme is an understanding of human rights practice that goes beyond but does not ignore the law. We will use the development, critique, application and consequences of law to understand human rights practice. By the end of the course, you will have gained a holistic understanding of human rights in a broader social and political context. A work placement is central to this programme, which may involve working with the organisations of the state, civil society and the corporate sector.

At Roehampton, you will engage with active researchers who are committed to social justice and have made ground-breaking impacts on society. The Crucible Centre for Human Rights Research is a multidisciplinary research centre conducting research on a range of contemporary human rights, migration and related issues. You will benefit from the number of regular workshops and seminars that the centre holds as well as being a part of major EU-funded projects and activities.

Content

Mainstreamed throughout the programme is an attention to human rights practice in the areas of gender, childhood and religion. You will gain a thorough understanding of human rights issues through using an academic multi-disciplinary approach and the application of human rights theory and practice in relation to law, sociology, social anthropology, international relations, civil society and political science. You will be able to articulate human rights issues from a variety of perspectives, to apply theory from different fields and disciplines, to discuss and assess the strengths and weaknesses of different perspectives and critically evaluate how these perspectives can be used by different actors, agencies and stakeholders.

You will start off studying at the Göteborgs Universitet (Göteborg, Sweden) from August to January, and then from February to July at the Universidad de Deusto (Bilbao, Spain), and from September to December here at Roehampton. From December to June, you’ll have the opportunity to study in the most appropriate country to your dissertation subject area.

You will study organisational analysis to ensure that the organisations through which you pursue human rights work are better managed. This element of the programme combines class and placement learning, which is central to the programme. The modules in this course will help you develop the analytical skills and expertise in human rights perspectives, contexts organisations, policy-making and practice.

Are you interested in a career in which you can address spatial and environmental challenges such as climate change or transnational river management which require cooperation between different regions? The joint Master’s programme in PLANET Europe can help you achieve this with its focus on the European dimension of spatial planning, spatial and environmental policy and regional economic development.

The influence of EU policies and actions on spatial and environmental planning in the EU member states is ever increasing. European regions are more and more interlinked, and cooperation across national borders is now a routine aspect of the work of spatial planners. This European dimension of planning requires a new generation of graduates, who can respond to, as well as influence, EU and international policy, who are sensitive to cultural and institutional differences, and who are capable of cooperating with colleagues in other European countries.

In the first year of your PLANET Europe studies, you’ll get a theoretical grounding in multi-level governance, institutional perspectives and comparative analysis at two of the partner universities. In the second year, you’ll combine your academic studies with professional experience, and conclude your studies with independent Master’s thesis research.

The PLANET Europe Master’s programme prepares you for a career as spatial and environmental planner within research, consultancy and policy making. Our graduates could work at universities or for EU institutions, national and regional public authorities, private companies and NGOs dealing with spatial planning, regional policy and environmental planning.

See the website http://www.ru.nl/masters/planet-europe

Why study PLANET Europe?

- You’ll participate in a unique collaborative and integrated European Master’s programme specialising in the rich and dynamic area of European spatial planning.
- You’ll acquire the important skills and knowledge in this field while at the same time benefiting from Europe’s cultural and linguistic diversity.

- You can choose whether you want to focus more on economic development or on the sustainable development of spatial planning and spatial development.

- You’ll be awarded two Master of Science degrees, depending on your specialisation:
1.MSc in Spatial Planning or MSc in Social and Political Sciences of the Environment from Radboud University (60 EC).
2.MSc in Spatial Planning from the Blekinge Institute of Technology (120 EC), or MSc in European Spatial Planning and Environmental Policy from Cardiff University (120 EC).

- You’ll be taught in a stimulating, collegial setting with small groups of international students and by internationally recognised professors in their specific fields.

- You’ll have a chance to live in the Netherlands and either Wales or Sweden in your first year of studies, and possibly other countries during your second year. By having lived in different countries and having attended two different universities, you’ll have acquired an exceptional international learning experience.

Programme and specialisations

The programme starts with a comprehensive introduction on the European dimension of spatial planning and the spatial impacts of EU policies in the first semester at Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. In the second semester you’ll go on to specialise (a choice that needs to made during the application process):
1. European Spatial Planning and Sustainable Development
At Cardiff University, Wales, United Kingdom
This specialisation focuses more on sustainable development in policy and practice in the European Union.

2. European Spatial Planning and Regional Economic Development
At Blekinge Institute of Technology, Karlskrona, Sweden
This specialisation focuses more on the regional economical developments and on innovation and cohesion in the European Union.

In the third semester, you’ll apply your newly acquired academic knowledge to planning practice. You’ll complete the programme with an individual Master’s thesis on a topic of your choice under joint supervision from experts from two of the universities.

Prospective students and career opportunities

The need for internationally qualified spatial and environmental planners with a solid knowledge of EU policy, sustainable development, economic competitiveness and territorial cooperation is widely recognised by national, regional and international organisations. European regions are increasingly interlinked, and cooperation across national borders on spatial development issues is now a routine aspect of the work of planning practitioners. There are numerous examples of such transboundary spatial issues that require cooperation in the fields of environment, transport or economic development.

The rise of cross-national comparative research in the field of spatial and environmental planning over recent years is proof of the increasing interest in policy transfer and lesson drawing from other countries in both planning practice and academia. Moreover, the influence of EU policy and law, e.g. in the field of environment, transport or agriculture/rural policy, on spatial development is ever increasing, and a large part of the work of planners now is of EU or international origin.

Thus, there is great demand for spatial and environmental planners with a thorough knowledge of the European and international policy context. Yet despite these trends towards a Europeanisation of spatial and environmental planning, planning practice still remains rooted in national approaches and mindsets. Consequently, planning graduates often do not find themselves well equipped to engage successfully in European territorial cooperation or to consider appropriate responses to implement EU policy and legislation.

The exciting Master's programme: 'PLANET Europe: European spatial planning, environmental policies and regional development', therefore provides graduates with substantive knowledge about the influences of EU and international policy on spatial development, and with the theoretical and methodological tools to shape the EU territorial cohesion agenda. Graduates develop cross-national communication skills and be able to work in interdisciplinary and multi-cultural teams. Such highly-skilled graduates who are well prepared for the new challenges of undertaking spatial and environmental planning in the EU will be an important asset for the European labour market and employers in the field. Graduates from this Master's programme can work in European or international organisations, national and regional public authorities, private companies and NGOs dealing with spatial planning, regional policy and environmental planning. Because of the international orientation and the thorough academic foundation of the Masters programme, graduates are also well prepared to pursue an academic career and undertake doctoral research.

Come and study with the pioneer of Music Industry Studies at MA level within the UK.

This MA will give you an advanced and discerning knowledge of music industry practices, drawing on our international research and the experience of our tutors. On it you'll investigate current music industry practices in-depth.

The programme is taught alongside the Masters programme in Popular Music Studies, which will broaden your theoretical understanding and opportunities for research. We anticipate class sizes to be between 15 and 20 students.

All postgraduates also have access to the department's programme of research seminars and performances.

Key Facts

REF 2014
In the latest Research Excellence Framework, we increased the proportion of 4* research from 10% (in the RAE 2008)to 32%, with 40% of impact rated 4* (outstanding) and 50% of environment rated 4* (world-leading).

Why School of Music?

Strong research culture

Across the School, our research activity has a strong interdisciplinary nature and is concentrated in three cross-cutting areas:-

Critical and Contextual Approaches
Creative Practice
Media and Industry Studies.

We're at the forefront of research and postgraduate teaching. Our Institute of Popular Music (IPM) was the first academic centre created specifically to study popular music – and where better than in the home of the Beatles? It also boasts an enviable archive of donated recorded material.

Staff and students contribute fully to our research areas, which are informed by the broadly defined fields of:

Critical theory
Musicology
Music Analysis
Music and the moving image (including new media)
Ethnomusicology
Composition
Music industries
Media and cultural studies.

Research students participate fully in our research activity. They present papers at the School’s research seminars, work as Teaching Assistants within the School (with pedagogical training and support provided). There are also weekly research, career, and teaching seminars for all postgrads.

As a postgraduate student you'll be able to attend research seminars involving guest speakers from many disciplines and subdisciplines. You'll also be closely involved in classical, traditional and popular music concerts performed by professional musicians and students.

Composer Kenneth Hesketh and conductor Vasily Petrenko from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic - neighbours with whom we have launched a partnership - have recently been made honorary professors of Music at Liverpool.

Career prospects

Students from the taught postgraduate programmes in the School of Music have gone on to a wide range of careers, including various positions in the music industries, museums, arts administration, journalism, publishing, and teaching. PhDs from the School of Music are in full-time lectureships around the world (e.g. Canada, Sweden). The MMus and MA in Popular Music and Music Industry Studies have been recognised by the AHRC as appropriate training for advanced research and all three pathways prepare students for a level of further training equivalent to doctoral study.

Overview

Environmental problems are indisputably a part of the contemporary political landscape. Societies across the globe increasingly confront innumerable and often inter-related environmental challenges ranging from climate change and loss of biodiversity to local conflicts about land-use. Each of these challenges has political, economic, cultural and ethical dimensions; each provides an opportunity to rethink longstanding debates and opens up new fields of political enquiry.

SPIRE’s Masters in Environmental Politics has run since 1996 and is taught by some of the most prominent figures in the field. The course is designed for people who wish to understand and analyse the wide range of political and policy questions thrown up by increasingly complicated environmental problems. It has attracted students from all over the UK, the EU and the world. The international mix of students and staff adds greatly to the nature of discussion and learning.

Keele University has an unrivalled reputation for its work in Environmental Politics, with internationally recognised experts in various fields of social science environmental research particularly in the fields of sociology, political theory, economics, international relations, environmental ethics and public policy. Our interdisciplinary approach, together with a large and active research community on environmental issues within Keele, contributes to a thriving intellectual culture of which you can expect to be a part as an Environmental Politics student.

The course is taught over a 12 month period (September-September; January-January). It is available as a full-time and/or part-time mode of study. Students completing the course have gone on to a variety of careers in the public, private and voluntary sectors.

See the website https://www.keele.ac.uk/pgtcourses/environmentalpolitics/

Course Aims

The aim of the MA/MRes in Environmental Politics is to provide you with an intensive period of study in which to learn about environmental politics and policy in a systematic and critical manner. It aims to provide you with a foundation in the theoretical and practical dimensions of this challenging, interdisciplinary field. In addition to your core modules for the MA/MRes, we recommend that you take our Dimensions of Environmental Politics module, which introduces five key fields of political inquiry in relation to the environment. It looks at: green political theory; the political sociology of the environment; the environment and public policy; environment and political economy; and international environmental politics. Your other chosen elective modules and your dissertation project give a broad scope in which to pursue specific environmental topics of your own choosing.

Overview

In international politics, the primary day-to-day means of contact between states is through the institution of diplomacy. A rich legal tradition of how this diplomacy is governed has evolved, and the practices of diplomacy by states continue to change and shape the patterns of world politics around us. So one important way to understand international politics is to examine the practices of diplomats and the contexts within which they operate.

Keele's MA/MRes in Diplomatic Studies aims to meet this need. The first of its kind in the UK, it continues to provide a solid, advanced grounding in the legal foundations, and the theory and practice of diplomacy. Many students on the course are from diplomatic backgrounds, and so the course provides a useful link between the worlds of academia and of practical policy-making.

The course is taught over a 12 month period (September-September; January-January). It is available as a full-time and/or part-time mode of study. Students completing the course have gone on to a variety of careers in the public, private and voluntary sectors.

See the website https://www.keele.ac.uk/pgtcourses/diplomaticstudies/

Course Aims

The course aims to ground students in the central legal, theoretical and practical aspects of diplomacy. It does this within a context of a more general understanding of International Relations. It also prepares students for research – both research that they may do for their dissertation, but also research that they may undertake in their future academic or professional work. The optional modules and the dissertation give students a broad scope in which to pursue topics of their own choosing.
