The College of Arts offer three Taught Masters Programmes in Political Science and European Union Studies that can help you get one step closer to fulfilling your career aspirations. These courses don’t require you to have previous study experience in that field, and give you the chance to change the current direction of your studies.

In our Master of Policy and Governance you will learn about policy analysis and strategic decision-making, with a goal to progress towards a career in local, regional, national, and not-for-profit roles in governance. Our Master of International Relations and Diplomacy is perfect if you are interested in working in international and global affairs. And in our Master of European Union Studies you will learn about the EU’s global role in foreign policy development, human rights, trade and multiculturalism.
