Our courses include creative pedagogical measures, including simulations and role play, debates, site visits, case-focused presentations, and in-class assessments and exercises designed to help students develop facility in research but also in grasping unfamiliar contexts and presenting their analyses in effective and compelling ways.
Students are expected to go beyond canonical formulations of the discipline, to be analytical, curious, self-reflective, and exploratory, to be open to debate and discussion with diverse points of view, to develop the skills to keep up with rapidly changing political domains, and ultimately, to learn how to deal with these new challenges as analysts, practitioners, and leaders.
Students in good academic standing have the option to tailor an area of specialisation with faculty input, and contingent on clearing the departmental approval process. These could be focused on a region, an area of governance, an empirical theme or problem, a theoretical perspective, and more.
Students may also study a foreign language once they reach the elective stage, from among the language options taught at JSIA. These include French, Arabic, Spanish, Mandarin, German, and Dari.
