Electives: B.A. (Hons.) Global Affairs

Students are offered a number of elective courses from their third year of study. These courses are often interdisciplinary, involving elements of law as well as other disciplines in social science and management. The successful completion of electives will lead to certain credits being awarded, which are ascertained per elective based on the number of instructional hours.

JSIA Elective Policy

Global Affairs students are offered elective courses from their fourth semester of study. These courses are often interdisciplinary, involving elements of law as well as other disciplines in social science and management.

Beside the list of JSIA elective courses that are offered every semester to JSIA students, other JGU schools also offer a number of cross elective courses that are available for bidding to JSIA students.

A. Elective Specialisation (Clusters)

JSIA is offering elective courses that are categorised into five main clusters:

  • Peace and Conflict Studies
  • Economics and Foreign Policy
  • Defence and National Security Studies
  • Human Rights and International Development
  • Global South Studies
B.A. Global Affairs students can select three electives worth 12 credits from one track (cluster) to specialise in a given concentration and get awarded with a certificate of specialisation after graduation in that cluster. The three cluster elective courses can be taken in one semester or may be spread over two or more semesters (upon student choice).

B. Guidelines and Rules for Electives

Students can take a maximum of 36 credits outside JSIA electives (i.e. other JGU schools’ cross electives) which represent a 25% of the B.A. Global Affairs programme’s minimum credit requirements (150 credits). Students should opt for at least one JSIA elective/cross elective course at every elective bidding.

External JSIA credits exceeding 25% will imply the approval of the Dean of the School and Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs for Undergraduate programmes.

The removal of an elective with an (F) is possible only after the final semester if the student has successfully substituted the ‘Fail’ elective with a ‘Pass’ elective and fulfilled.
