International Law and International Relations
Combining teaching from the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion (PPR) and the Law School, this degree develops skills, ability and knowledge in the field of International Relations. Students without prior study of politics, law or international relations are encouraged, but are expected to work hard to make up the gap to master advanced level study of these subjects. A student is awarded either an LLM or an MA degree dependent on the weighting of law and politics courses studied. A major factor will be the department responsible for the supervision of the final dissertation.
A good 2nd Class Honours degree. IELTS: 6.5 or equivalent.
Core modules include: International law; major approaches to the study of international relations; dissertation. Option modules may include: International human rights; law of international organisations and institutions; international criminal law; international terrorism and the law; international environmental law; rights of peoples; the right to adequate food as a human right; law and global health; transitional justice.
Assessment is via a combination of coursework and a dissertation.
