Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) in Barcelona and The University of Warwick in Coventry (UK) are proud to launch a new Double Degree in 2014 for students wishing to specialise in the theoretical and philosophical aspects of politics. The Department of Political and Social Sciences at UPF and the Politics and International Studies (PAIS) Department at The University of Warwick have teamed up to offer a double theory-philosophy programme by taking the MA in Political & Legal Theory at Warwick and the Master in Political Philosophy at UPF.

Studying in two different countries is inherently beneficial: in addition to exploring your subject from two different starting points, you will develop your inter-cultural skills and experience as well, not to mention enhance your ability to adapt to new situations. Furthermore, you will be able to enhance your prospects beyond the MA course as employers and reputable universities worldwide recognise the academic excellence of Warwick and UPF graduates.

Programme content

Students in the Double Degree take the MA in Political and Legal Theory at Warwick as well as the Master in Political Philosophy at UPF. You can further specialise through choosing optional modules, allowing you to enrich your strongly philosophical dissertation with viewpoints from other areas of politics studies.

You will be able to start your studies either at Warwick or at UPF. You will follow the component of your first year before moving on to your second year university; the summer in between is a great opportunity to take advantage of internship opportunities in the UK, Spain, or further afield. During the second year you will follow a second round of taught modules before moving on to a joint 15,000 word dissertation, allowing you to combine the knowledge and insight gained from both institutions into one jointly-marked piece of academic research.
