Course summary

Our MSc European Politics and Policy offers an intensive exploration of how politics, government and public policy operate within EU's governing structures and institutions. These are placed within an international context and considered alongside pressing issues associated with international relations, international law and globalisation and global politics.

You will be taught by academics with expertise and an extensive publication record in EU and wider European politics and government. The programme combines theoretical approaches with empirical knowledge and real-world case studies. It also involves several special events with leading guest speakers, including policy makers and academics.

You will explore the history, theories, politics and institutions of European integration, as well as the politics of Euroscepticism (in the UK and beyond) and competing views about the future of the European Union. The programme also covers the EU’s policies in a range of sectors (including the single market, foreign affairs, macro-economic policy) and offers you the conceptual and theoretical tools to analyse public policy within and across states.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates go in to careers in international organisations, such as the European Union, local and national government, the diplomatic service, policy work, the voluntary sector and journalism. Possible professions include diplomat, policy researcher, or journalist. This degree may also be useful in becoming a Civil Service fast streamer, politician’s assistant, or charity officer.

We offer a comprehensive Careers Service to help you advance your career, while our in-house, professional recruitment consultancy, Birkbeck Talent, works with London’s top employers to help you gain work experience that fits in with your evening studies.
