      WHY THIS PROGRAMME:

      • This Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) programme is unique in examining Southern Europe as a distinct region with its own identity and global role. Themes include democracy and protest, migration, social and economic change, nationalism, European integration and the new trade and security challenges that are reshaping the region.
      • Multiple mobility periods allow for a truly international learning experience. Immersion into South European society and culture, experience of diverse educational systems, and needs-based language training in all major South European languages offer in depth knowledge of the region.
      • Research and professional tracks are available for maximum choice in curriculum building. The research track leads to a dissertation while the professional track leads to a substantial work placement and a professional project.
      • EMJMD consortium partners include University of Glasgow, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Aix-Marseille Université, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, LUISS Guido Carli Rome and Instituto de Ciências Sociais da Universidade de Lisboa.
      • An innovative summer school offering dissertation training will be held annually in the month of June at ICS, University of Lisbon, Portugal.
      • Guest lectures and seminars are offered by scholars and policy practitioners who are leading experts in their field.

      PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

      The programme is taught over 24 months and includes three mobility periods. In semester 1 you gain an overview of the subject in Glasgow, followed by a choice of mobility partner in semester 2 (Athens or Madrid). Here you will follow a geographical pathway that situates the region in its broader neighbourhood context. Semester 2 also includes an online research and training course. A summer school featuring dissertation/project workshops and seminars on advanced research techniques will be held on the third week of June in Lisbon.

      In semester 3 you will have the choice of four thematic pathways along the research track in Athens, Madrid, Aix-Marseille or Rome. Alternatively, you may follow a professional track that includes a lengthy work placement available in Madrid or Aix-Marseille. You will spend semester 4 with the same semester 3 mobility partner researching and writing your dissertation or professional project under the guidance of a supervisory team of South European Studies staff. If on the professional track you will also undertake a substantial work placement in semester 4. Please note semesters 3 and 4 cannot be spent with the same partner as semester 2.

      The language of instruction is English except in Aix-Marseille where the language of instruction is French. In Madrid, some optional courses will be offered in Spanish. Students will write their dissertation or professional project in English, but will be offered the option of writing it in French (in Aix-Marseille). Spanish (in Madrid) or Italian (in Rome) if they so wish. Teaching will be via lectures and small group seminars utilising a wealth of theoretical and methodological approaches drawn from the humanities and social sciences. Assignments and coursework include individual and group presentations, structured debates, simulation exercises and role play, reflective logs, fieldwork and study trips. Language courses in all major South European languages are available with each mobility partner over the two years of the programme.
