Course content

Develop your understanding of what corruption is, where and why it proliferates, and what can be done to counteract it.

Our interdisciplinary MA looks at issues of corruption and governance. You’ll address challenging issues of how different disciplines define corruption and how this can lead to different anti-corruption approaches.

You examine specific examples, from systematic abuses of power by parties, politicians and civil servants to small-scale, petty misdemeanours. The role of business can also be analysed.

We welcome applications from all disciplines and from those who have first-hand experience of the world of anti-corruption.

How will I study?

You will study core modules and options during the spring and autumn terms. In the spring term, you can also opt for an internship. In the summer you work on your dissertation.

All modules are assessed by term papers, presentations and exams. You also write a 15,000-word dissertation in the summer term. The internship is assessed by a report on what you did and how this links into theories of corruption, anti-corruption and/or good governance.

Internship

You have the opportunity to take up a three-month internship. Here, you put the theory learned in the seminar room in to practice.
