The programme provides a historically grounded, multi-disciplinary analysis of European integration and national transformation processes, taught by staff with experience of policy-making in Europe.
You will focus on aspects of European integration and reform, along with public policy-making in European countries through the lens of an evolving state-market relationship. You will be able to choose from specialist courses in aspects of political economy; the EU; European Identity; and courses with a more geographical focus. You will also attend a programme of guest lectures from distinguished outside speakers, including business leaders and policy-makers.
The programme considers the different processes of economic integration in the context of historical and current debates about the nature of political economy, allowing you to explore how these different theoretical approaches can be successfully applied to policy choices and empirical puzzles in the EU as a whole and in its member-states.
Former graduates pursue successful careers in politics, business, diplomacy, consultancy, journalism, and in international organisations and financial institutions. Students from this programme are actively head hunted by companies and international organisations working in the region.
