I'm a second year at Durham wanting to do a taught masters next, but I know very little about the application/funding process for masters courses (guidance from my tutor starts next term) but want to get a head start.
Basically, my situation is this:
Excellent GCSEs and A Levels, now studying a Politics BA at Durham University, expecting a high 2.1 (if not a first) in my degree.
I have specialized my modules + dissertation down to my core interests: the USA, democracy, the EU economy and British political extremism. My dissertation will be on democracy in the USA, with particular emphasis on presidential elections.
I want to know if I am coming from the right background to study this course.
Any information from current students on the application process for the department would be very useful - as would information on your academic background prior to application.
This course is interdisciplinary, and I fear I may be expecting too much 'politics' from it - the other courses I'm looking at are all titled things like 'Comparative Democracies'
Any tips/advice/anecdotes about masters courses and general life in this department would also be most helpful.
