Scottish Parliamentary Program: The aim of this program is to introduce students to key aspects of Scottish and British politics and culture by means of academic instruction, followed by placements in the Parliament, built around a research project designed to aid the work of the host MSP (Member of the Scottish Parliament).The objective of the course is to give students an understanding of how Scotland has evolved as a society, especially in the context of the United Kingdom, how key aspects of its cultural development reflect that process, as well as focusing on the policy-making process in Scotland and the impact the Scottish Parliament has had since it was ‘re-convened’ in 1999. NOTE: This program is highly competitive, and is restricted to no more than 20 students per semester. It is strongly advised that you APPLY EARLY.
