Electives: M.A. Diplomacy, Law and Business

JSIA Elective Policy:

  • JSIA M.A. Diplomacy, Law and Business Students are offered elective courses from their first 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 M.A. (DLB) students, other JGU schools are also offering a number of cross elective courses that are available for bidding to JSIA students.

A. Elective Specialization (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

    M.A. Diplomacy, Law and Business Students can select three electives that worth 12 credits from one track (cluster) in order to specialise in a given concentration and get awarded 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 (based on student’s choice).

B. Guidelines and Rules for Electives

  • Students can take a maximum of 20 credits outside JSIA electives (i.e. other JGU schools’ cross electives) which represent 25% of the entire M.A. (DLB) programme’s minimum credits (the 83 credits).
  • Students should opt for at least one JSIA elective/cross elective course at every elective. 
  • External JSIA Credits exceeding 25% will imply a sanction of Dean JSIA and Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs of the M.A. programme.
  • 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 all credit requirements.
