The M.A. (DLB) degree requires the completion of a minimum 83 credits over 4 semesters. All students are required to take 10 mandatory courses covering the fields of international relations, foreign policy and diplomacy, academic and public policy, international law and organizations, international economics, cultural and social studies, and much more.
Upon completion of the mandatory courses, students may choose from a wide range of elective courses offered by the Schools of International Affairs (JSIA), Law (JGLS), Business (JGBS), Public Policy (JSGP), Liberal Arts and Humanities (JSLH), Banking and Finance (JSBF), Art and Architecture (JSAA), Journalism and Communication (JSJC) and Jindal Institute of Behavioral Sciences (JIBS) at JGU.
In the final semester, students also have the option of completing a dissertation; the dissertation is worth 18 credits and can be done instead of elective courses of the same credit value.
Students are also required to complete a Guided Internship Programme between semester II and III. JSIA has a dedicated team of faculty and staff to assist students with obtaining internships, in both India and abroad, as per student preferences and interests.
The typical format for a class at JSIA is a discussion-based seminar on the principle of student-centred teaching. Students are encouraged to engage in critical thinking and lively debate, to draw links between theory, history and current affairs and to become better aware of the relationship between power, politics, business, law and justice.
