Course summary

The MSc Culture and Conflict in a Global Europe programme explores the ways in which Europe's cultural identity and history informs its contemporary political and geopolitical condition.

By situating Europe's cultural formation within a global political context, you will study both the politics of culture and the culture of politics in Europe today, exploring how culture both structures political conflicts (both internal and external), and frames efforts at their resolution.

The programme will enable students with backgrounds in the social sciences or the humanities to engage with Europe's historical and contemporary culture and politics in a multi- and inter-disciplinary way, using methods of investigation from political theory, philosophy, anthropology, international relations, political science, and media studies. You will be able to choose optional courses from across different disciplines, allowing you to tailor your studies to your interests and career goals.

Teaching methods

LSE is internationally recognised for its teaching and research and therefore employs a rich variety of teaching staff with a range of experience and status. Courses may be taught by individual members of faculty, such as lecturers, senior lecturers, readers, associate professors and professors. Many departments now also employ guest teachers and visiting members of staff, LSE teaching fellows and graduate teaching assistants who are usually doctoral research students and in the majority of cases, teach on undergraduate courses only.

Assessment

All taught courses are required to include formative coursework which is unassessed. It is designed to help prepare you for summative assessment which counts towards the course mark and to the degree award. The programme will encompass a range of summative assessments, including poster presentations, extended research essays (5,000 words on a student-developed research question), traditional short essays (2,000 words based on assigned questions) student-produced videos, and exams. Summative assessment may be conducted during the course or by final examination at the end of the course.

Careers

The programme 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.
