Master's degree in Politics/IR with a BA in Modern Languages?Watch
Need more help on going postgrad?
Would it be possible to do a Master's degree in an area such as politics, international relations, or international development with a BA in Modern Languages? Or do Master's and undergraduate degrees have to be directly related?
Not sure about development.
If you wanted to research, for example, social movements in the Arab Spring, I think a background in Arabic is more valuable than Democracy 101; or researching voting behaviour of German MEPs in the European Parliament would be better with fluent German. You get my point.
Increasingly, lots of courses are requiring a background in social statistics and/or research methods, though, so you best look closely at the requirements.
