What is an MA in International Law? This degree program usually requires students to learn one or more foreign languages. The focus of this type of program tends to be on understanding the workings of business and organizations that function internationally. This MA does not prepare students to practice law.

Although a dissertation or research project may not necessarily be required, there may be some sort of capstone paper to be written before graduation.
