Course summary

Overview

Our MRes programme provide a personalised and focused introduction to postgraduate research allowing you to develop as an independent researcher with the support of an expert in International Relations and Security.

It provides a rigorous overview of the current state of scholarship in your selected field, guides you, through a programme of directed, individualised reading, to the selection of a feasible research project, and allows you to complete a substantial piece of research.

Employability

Studying Politics develops critical and research skills valued by employers - data collection and analysis, problem-solving, argument and self-expression. Graduates have achieved much success in areas such as broadcasting, journalism, the civil service, government (local, national and European), marketing, public relations and academia.

Career prospects

Student career development is a major interest for the department and we actively encourage you to integrate career planning into your academic studies. This is promoted through individual modules which have strong policy and career relevant aspects, a close relationship with the University’s excellent Careers Service and visits to relevant UK and EU actors in Liverpool, London and Brussels.

Over the course of your studies you will acquire unique analytical, problem-solving, written and verbal presentation, and methodological skills. This broad skill-set increases your employment opportunities as it allows you to market themselves in several areas. For example, a politics degree opens career prospects in these areas:

  • Parliament, e.g. assistant to member of parliament,
  • Government institutions (state or local level), e.g. civil servant or as a diplomat,
  • International Organisations (e.g. UN, NATO, EU),
  • Non-governmental organisations (e.g. Human Rights Watch),
  • Newspaper journalism and other media,
  • Corporate sector, e.g. lobbying or consultancy positions, in public relations, or to provide strategic analysis within the companies,
  • Publishers,
  • Academia or political consultancy (Think Tank).
