For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via The MPhil in Politics (European Politics and Society) is an advanced two-year graduate degree which provides training in research techniques and methodology and enables you to acquire substantive knowledge in this sub-area of the discipline. It is also suitable if you later wish to embark upon doctoral research. The MPhil in Politics (European Politics and Society) is taught by a group of scholars who specialise in all aspects of European politics, including European integration, comparative European government, Europeâ??s external relations and the political systems of individual European countries. The MPhil offers the opportunity to engage with scholars and practitioners from various European countries and institutions, and will provide you with a solid foundation for a wide range of careers, including academic, professional, commercial, diplomatic and governmental positions. In the first year, you must complete core classes and tutorials in European Governance and a programme of research methods training, which includes core courses in statistics and research design and specialised elective courses. At the end of your first year, you will sit a three-hour written examination in the core subject and a research design proposal as preparation for the MPhil thesis. Progression to the second year is conditional on satisfactory performance in the first. In your second year, you must write a thesis and complete two specialist optional papers. Options that have been offered in recent years include The Political Sociology of Post-Communist States, Politics in the EU, EU Foreign Policy, the government and politics of European countries such as the UK and France, and thematic subjects such as Comparative Presidentialism, Comparative Political Economy and Comparative European Parliaments. At the end of the course, you are required to complete the assessment in the optional papers of your choice and submit a thesis of not more than 30,000 words.
