Course summary

The MSc European Studies (Research) will allow you to combine the study of substantive themes in European integration with a strong methodological training. It will provide you with a methodologically and historically grounded, multidisciplinary analysis of Europe as a political, economic and cultural space. It also analyses European integration and the post-communist transformation process.

You will take courses from a range of options from European Institute MSc degrees, together with intensive research design and methods training. You will use methodology to drive your research and will be supported in developing research questions of real-world relevance. You will be trained in both quantitative and qualitative methods and will learn to apply them robustly throughout your research process, in order to best answer your question. You will also attend a programme of guest lectures from distinguished outside speakers, including business leaders and policy-makers.

This programme will provide an ideal preparation for doctoral study, as well as for successful careers in politics, journalism, diplomacy, business and in international financial institutions.

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. LSE uses a range of formative assessment, such as essays, problem sets, case studies, reports, quizzes, mock exams and many others. Summative assessment may be conducted during the course or by final examination at the end of the course.

Careers

Former graduates pursue successful careers in academia, politics, journalism, diplomacy and business, and in international financial institutions. Students from this programme are actively headhunted by companies and international organisations working in the region.

Students who have successfully completed the MSc European Studies (Research) will be well placed to apply for admission into competitive doctoral programmes in the UK and elsewhere. For those looking to pursue doctoral research at the European Institute, the MSc European Studies (Research) offers an excellent opportunity to get to know potential PhD supervisors prior to application for the MPhil/PhD in European Studies.
