MA Research in Politics & International Studies


Course Description

This programme is an excellent entry point into further academic research or applied careers in policy and politics.

Its four core compulsory modules will help you to develop key research skills. The Quantitative Skills module provides analytical and interpretative training in an area that the ESRC recently identified as a priority area often omitted from more traditional Master’s. Further modules (Qualitative Methods; Explanation in Social Science; and Comparative Politics) will equip you with a comprehensive toolkit to use in your optional module studies.

You will develop key skills including: the ability to interrogate large data sets using SPSS for Windows; semi-structured political interviewing; quantitative methods for comparative politics; and an understanding of the association between functional (social science) and evolutionary (biological) explanations. As an RPAIS alumnus/alumna, you’ll be positioned especially well for careers in professional research, consultation and academia.
