Double degree Masters programme: IMESS

 

The International Masters in Economy, State and Society (IMESS) is a leading two-year double degree Master's programme in comparative area studies, which focuses on developing in-depth knowledge and understanding of Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe, the Baltics, Russia, the Caucasus and Central Asia.

IMESS incorporates advanced training in methodology and research with specialized study tracks:

• Politics and Security

• Economics and Business

• History and Society

• Politics and International Economy

Each track combines specialist electives (economics, politics, society or history), research methods training (social sciences or humanities), and language tuition with an advanced research dissertation conducted during the latter part of the degree. The central objective of the programme is to enhance global understanding and awareness of the wider European region. As well as developing cultural and linguistic knowledge of both Eastern and Western Europe, participants acquire the skills to identify and critically analyse key factors shaping the economies, states and societies of the expanding European region.
