This 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.
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. You will be able choose optional courses from across different disciplines, allowing you to tailor your studies to your interests and career goals.
It 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.
Former graduates pursue successful careers in politics, journalism, research, diplomacy, business and in international institutions and NGOs. Students from our programmes are actively head-hunted by international organisations working in the region.
