Double Masters programme

With a year spent at one of three international institutions, these double Master’s programmes offer you the opportunity to experience two diverse cultural and academic worlds.

If you select this two-year programme, you will study for one year at Warwick — following one of our 11 single-year programmes — and one year at a partner university, culminating in a joint dissertation. Each of our partners offers something unique to complement your Warwick degree:

Journalism, Politics and International Studies: University of Monash, Melbourne, Australia

Uniquely among the double degrees, on this programme you will follow the Journalism course at Monash, allowing you to blend journalistic training with politics and international studies. Depending on which perspective you favour, you will be able to write a traditional dissertation or submit a journalistic project at the end of your degree.

Global Governance: University of Waterloo, Canada

The Balsillie School of International Affairs at Waterloo is Canada’s leading school of international affairs. As a student there, you’ll have the opportunity to gain first-hand experience at CIGI, a policy think tank situated next door to the school.

International Service: American University (AU), Washington, DC

At AU, you will have access to a wide range of experts and professionals across the policy and governance sector — and beyond. You will also have various internship opportunities either as part of your degree or after you graduate.

Politics and International Studies OR Political and Legal Theory: Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF), Barcelona, Spain

If you take any of the 11 PAIS specialisations, you can go to UPF to follow their Research in Political Science degree, customising your UPF year along a variety of pathways. Alternatively, if you take the MA Political and Legal Theory at Warwick, you have the option to study the Political Philosophy programme during your UPF year, combining studies at two of Europe’s best departments for political theory.

Politics and Public Administration: Universität Konstanz, Germany

As one of Germany’s leading ‘young’ universities, Konstanz will offer you both critical theory and practical administrative and quantitative training. You will also have access to a huge international network of internship and placement opportunities.

Politics and International Studies: Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore

At the S Rajaratnam School of International Studies at NTU, you will be able to see politics and international studies from Southeast Asia and benefit from guest lectures by policy practitioners from around the world.
