International Masters (Double degree/single degree): 2 years full-time
This challenging and innovative programme enables you to understand the history of communism and why it collapsed. You gain an informed knowledge of the process of economic and political transformation in the former communist states.
We want to develop world class researchers specialising in one or more of the following critical geopolitical areas: Central Asia; the Caucasus & Caspian Sea Basin; Russia; Central and Eastern Europe, including the Baltic Sea Region. This should support bodies like the European Union to address the myriad of socio-economic, political and security challenges of the 21st century. Flexible and high quality language training is an essential part of the programme.
You will get international experience in at least two countries, develop your skills in area research and acquire a range of key employability skills through our well-developed placements with associate partners from the business, public policy and third sector communities. You will also participate in conferences, workshops and other socio-cultural events, making the experience truly rewarding.
You will study at the University of Glasgow in the first year. The second year is spent at another Erasmus Mundus double degree partner university or single degree exchange university (listed previously) where you will follow one or more distinct study tracks (eg Central Asia Studies; The Caucasus/Caspian Sea Basin Studies; Baltic Sea Region Studies; Soviet and Post-Soviet Studies; and Central European Studies) in semester one, followed by a 20,000-25,000 word dissertation.
The Erasmus Mundus International Masters degree will prepare you for careers in policy-making in government, foreign ministries, the EU, Intergovernmental organisations and non-governmental organisations. Other career opportunities include higher education and business.
Entry requirements for postgraduate taught programmes are a 2.1 Honours degree or equivalent qualification (for example, GPA 3.0 or above) in a relevant subject.
Applicants from other subject backgrounds, however, will be considered.
If your first language is not English, the University sets a minimum English Language proficiency level.
CEES Students run their own student society called CEESSoc, which organises and runs a wide range of events throughout the year. These include quiz nights, film evenings, talk and lectures and food and drink evenings. As you can imagine these events always have a Central and East European theme and are very popular.
