New MA programmes in European Studies at UL

The Department of Politics and Public Administration has launched two new MA programmes in the area of European Studies. Applications are now accepted for the academic year 2011/12. A limited number of tuition fee waiver scholarships are also available.

MA in European Union Politics and Law

The MA in European Union Politics and Law is an interdiciplinary programme offered in cooperation with UL's School of Law. It is designed to provide students with a clear and comprehensive understanding of how the European Union works. The EU and its member states form a political and administrative system governed and held together by the rule of law. Therefore, combining insights from law and political science, this interdisciplinary programme offers a unique approach to the study of the EU and its increasingly complex interrelationships with member state governments and administrations. The programme aims to provide the substantive knowledge required of students who intent to pursue a career in the European institutions and other EU-related organisations in Ireland or internationally. In addition, the programme aims to foster students' transferable skills, emphasising research methods and other job-relevant competences, which are attractive to employers in a wide range of occupational areas.

MA in European Politics and Governance

The MA in European Politics and Governance is designed to provide students with an advanced understanding of how modern societies are governed through the complex interaction between public and private actors at different levels of government. The ability of national governments to determine domestic policy outcomes is increasingly limited by interdependencies with local and European levels of government. Furthermore, the distinction between governmental and non-governmental organisations is increasingly blurred when the formulation and implementation of policies relies heavily on the cooperation of private actors. Taking a multi-level and governance perspective, the programme offers a distinctive approach to the study of politics and policy-making. The programme aims to provide the substantive knowledge required of students who intent to pursue a career in governmental and non-governmental organisations at the local, national, or European level. In addition, the programme aims to foster students' transferable skills, emphasising research methods and other job-relevant competences, which are attractive to employers in a wide range of occupational areas.
