Global Europe: Culture and Conflict MSc

Study Details

MSc 12 months full-time, 24 months part-time

The MSc Global Europe: Culture and Conflict programme explores the multifaceted opportunities and challenges globalisation brings to Europe.

By situating Europe within a global context, you will study both the politics of culture and the culture of politics in Europe today, exploring how culture both structures conflicts and is used as a strategic tool to resolve them.

The programme will enable students with backgrounds in the social sciences or the humanities to engage with contemporary cultural conflicts in a multi- and inter-disciplinary way, using methods of investigation from international relations, political theory, sociology, anthropology, 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.
