International Human Rights and Terrorism Law
This programme provides a bridge from undergraduate level studies (or equivalent professional experience) to research, focusing on a distinct although relatively broad specialism. The core modules, combined with appropriate optional modules, lay a foundation in the basics of international human rights, and the law relating to terrorism. The coursework requirements will develop research skills, and lay the basis for a substantial dissertation. Graduates completing the programme are equipped to engage in more specialised practical or academic research in this field. This scheme offers two optional pathways, the programme of which will be confirmed by the student at registration: Studying 5 modules with a 20,000-word dissertation; studying 6 modules with a 15,000-word dissertation.
A good 2nd Class Honours degree, in an appropriate discipline. IELTS: 6.5 or equivalent.
Core modules include: International human rights law; international law; international terrorism and the law; dissertation. Option modules include: International criminal law; law of international organisations and institutions; rights of peoples; the right to adequate food as a human right; transitional justice; gender, sexualities and human rights.
Assessment is via coursework and a dissertation.
