The Masters (MPhil) in Identities and Cultures of Europe is a 90-credit Masters-level programme taken full-time over one year. Students who do not complete a dissertation are awarded a Postgraduate Diploma (PGradDip) if they pass all the taught components of the programme.
The programme consists of:
- 2 term-long compulsory core modules (2 x 10 credits), one per term;
- 4 term-long optional modules (4 x 10 credits), two per term;
- 1 research dissertation (30 credits)
Students take the first core module (Questions of Identity in Europe - Part 1) in Michaelmas Term (September-December) and the second core module (Questions of Identity in Europe - Part 2) in Hilary Term (January-April).
Two optional modules are taken in Michaelmas Term and two in Hilary Term. Students may also choose to do an internship as one of their optional modules in Hilary Term.
The dissertation is completed in Trinity Term (April-June) and over the summer (June-August) and must be submitted by the end of August.
In addition, the programme includes two non-credit-bearing activities, which students are expected to attend:
- a three-day field trip to Leuven (Belgium) during Michaelmas Term;
- a two-day identities and cultures workshop during Hilary Term.
