Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study at Swansea University - 'Welsh University of the Year 2017' (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017). This course is a multidisciplinary scheme combining insights from the fields of development studies, politics/political theory and international law. The programme examines the comparatively new interface between human rights and international development. The Extended MA (EMA) is a 240-credit postgraduate qualification that is equivalent to 120 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) and is thus a recognised Masters qualification throughout the European Union. The EMA is a standard UK MA plus an additional 60 credits (30 ECTS) and this additional coursework is undertaken in one semester at a partner institution overseas. The EMA is therefore not only an EU recognised postgraduate qualification it also adds a study abroad experience thus enhancing the qualification's employability credentials. The partner institution for EMA Development and Human Rights is the Department of Political Science and the Institute of Human Rights in the College of Law at the University of the Philippines, Diliman (UPD).
Modules typically include: human rights and humanitarian intervention; international human rights law; international security in the Asia Pacific; war, identity and society; civil society and international development; approaches to IR; critical security; governance (from state formation to global governance); rights based approaches to development; state of Africa; violence, conflict and development.
