The context underpinning this course is the need to understand and respond to the problems and challenges generated by the UK�s diverse society. It is intended to the equip students with the knowledge, understanding and skills to effectively engage in and lead meaningful dialogue advancing intercultural interaction, community cohesion and proactive citizenship. It develops reflective practitioners and students of dialogue equipped to examine and evaluate theories of dialogue and carry them forward with appropriate adaptations and innovations.
Students should have a good degree of a 2.2 from an awarding UK institution, or its equivalent. It is not necessary to hold the degree in politics or international relations. For students who fall short of this requirement, relevant work experience, or evidence of experience in the field, can be considered as an alternative.
Semester 1: approaches in dialogue; learning and research skills. Optional modules (choose 1): approaches to European integration: history and practice; comparative European politics; diplomatic law; the changing international agenda. Semester 2: dialogue work placement; dissertation.
Assessment will vary between modules but typically will involve presentations, coursework, and essays. The dissertation will be on a topic of the student�s choice relating to intercultural dialogue, community cohesion, diversity, citizenship or conflict resolution. Students will be assigned supervisors who they will meet on a regular basis.
