International Relations & Political Science Unit
We offer students a master’s and PhD degree that can be completed in three programs – a two year stand-alone Master’s program; an accelerated five year master’s/doctoral program; and a four year stand-alone PhD program.
The programs combine intellectual rigor with a highly varied set of substantive specialties and courses in order to train sophisticated generalists. The diverse background of both the faculty and the graduate students makes for a cosmopolitan and enriching environment.
As of the 2010-2011 academic year, students who enter at the master’s level can complete both a master’s and PhD degree within five years through the new accelerated master’s/doctoral program. This program has been tailored to transition advanced students into doctoral research after only three semesters of master’s studies.
All three programs concentrate on developing analytical skills that enable students to work and conduct research in a variety of settings: governments, international organisations, NGOs, businesses, and academia.
