MA/PDip in International Relations with International Law

University of Kent, School of Politics and International Relations
Campus Full time 1 - 2 years

Best Masters in Sociology in Poland 2017. Despite their close relationship, International Law and International Relations have traditionally been taught as discrete subjects. This programme is based on a recognition of the need to allow each discipline to be informed by the other. The programme covers the general methods, scope and theories of International Relations and International Law. The objective of the programme is to develop a critical consideration of traditional approaches to the discipline of International Relations. In the post-Cold War globalising world there is an increasingly apparent need for ever-more sophisticated ways of understanding the dramatic changes taking place. At the same time the programme allows students to consider the role, potential and limitations of public international law in international affairs. For some, this will enable an undergraduate specialisation to be developed. For others, it will enable knowledge of other fields to be applied to International Relations. The programme’s interdisciplinary approach is particularly suited to those involved with, or hoping to work for, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, foreign affairs departments and international law firms. Programme structure Full-time students complete the MA in International Relations with International Law over twelve months. Full-time students must follow six modules during the first two terms, divided into three complementary components. There are two required modules on International Relations and two optional modules, one required module on public international law and one further law option. Supervised dissertation work, on a relevant agreed subject, is then undertaken during the remainder of the academic year. The MA can be taken on a part-time basis, typically over two years but flexible arrangements are also possible. When taking it over two years, part-time students choose three modules in each academic year, and write a supervised dissertation thereafter. The programme is also offered in a 120 ECTS format – comprising nine taught modules plus a dissertation over 18 months – and as a Postgraduate Diploma – comprising six taught modules only – worth 120 Kent credits [60 ECTS]. Both the 120 ECTS version and the Diploma can also be taken on a part-time basis. [-]
