M.A. in Diplomacy, Law and Business

This degree is intended to be neither a totally academic nor a fully vocational one. It stresses theoretical research but insists on relating it to empirically rich phenomena from the social world. Unlike mainstream Masters programmes in International Relations, which are loaded in favour of theoretical research or ‘professional’ course work and internships, MA DLB strikes a balance between the two and requires students to be versed in both domains. A number of core and elective courses in this programme’s curriculum  have research essay assignments, which are expected to be at the frontier of ongoing scholarly debates and simultaneously accessible to policymakers in India and abroad. A separate category of assignments in the form of policy memos will be a common feature of many courses, developing student abilities to make convincing pitches to governments and organisations of various hues.

Eligibility : Applicant to the M.A (DLB) at JSIA must hold a degree (B.A, B.Sc, B.Com, B.E, B.Tech, BBA, LL.B, M.B.B.S etc.) from any recognised university. Students completing their Bachelor’s degree in 2019 can also apply.

This course is open to students from all disciplines: there are no pre-requisites in terms of the courses undertaken at the Bachelor’s level. There is no maximum age for applicantions.

Start Date : 01 August 2019
