About the MSc programme

The MSc Culture and Conflict in a Global Europe programme explores the multifaceted opportunities and challenges globalisation brings to Europe.

By situating Europe within a global context, you will study both the politics of culture and the culture of politics in Europe today, exploring how culture both structures conflicts and is used as a strategic tool to resolve them.

This programme is offered by the LSE's European Institute, which is a dedicated centre for the interdisciplinary study of processes of integration and fragmentation within Europe. The Institute's disciplinary range is unrivalled: with academic staff and distinguished visiting scholars drawn from the fields of politics, economics, geography, history, political economy, law, philosophy, sociology and international relations.

The programme will enable students with backgrounds in the social sciences or the humanities to engage with contemporary cultural conflicts in a multi- and inter-disciplinary way, using methods of investigation from international relations, political theory, sociology, anthropology, and media studies. During the programme, you will take two compulsory half unit courses: Culture and Security in Global Politics and The Culture of European Politics, and complete a 10,000 word dissertation; and you will be able to choose optional courses (totalling two units) from across different disciplines, allowing you to tailor your studies to your interests and career goals.

You will also take Interdisciplinary Research Methods and Design to prepare for the dissertation and attend Engaging with Europe: Professional Skills. This is a programme of guest lectures from distinguished outside speakers, including business leaders and policy-makers and is designed for your professional development. Additional training sessions and thematic workshops are offered throughout the year too.  

Graduate destinations

The programme will provide you with a strong foundation for a variety of academic and non-academic careers, in the private or public sector at national, European, or global levels; foreign policy; journalism; education; working for activist organisations in the NGO sector; or working in specialised agencies concerned, for example, with migrants or minorities.
