MA Politics 2011
Current PhD candidate
I chose to study for my masters at Warwick because of the excellent reputation of the PAIS department and the positive and welcoming feeling you get when you walk around the campus. The MA Politics course in particular attracted me to this department; it has provided a fantastic basis for undertaking future research. Studying research methods in the way proscribed by the MA Politics programme has significantly contributed to my level of understanding and ability to interpret research undertaken in other areas of politics (and other academic disciplines), and it was great to be able to adapt all of the required assessments to my areas of interest. There is an overwhelming feeling of community among all the students in the PAIS department, and I enjoyed my time as an MA student so much that after a year of employment I decided to return to PAIS to study for a PhD.
