Markita95 posted a question in Questions and AnswersHey everyone! I am a final year law student from India who will be applying for a Master's degree next year. I am interested in working in academia, and I hope to immediately become a PhD candidate after completing my Masters. I am interested in human rights, international law and international relations. I've been looking up various universities in Europe (because of living costs and fees being most accessible for me) and have found two interesting degrees: an LLM from the Geneva Academy in International Humanitarian Law & Human Rights, and the E.MA in Human Rights and Democratisation from EIUC Venice. The second program seems more tailored to my general interests, but I've found it hard to find reviews for these programs. I've got three questions: 1. Has anyone attended the European Masters Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation from EIUC Venice? If so, please let me know your opinion of the program and how well it prepares you for academia. 2. On a broader note, is a one-year master's program conducive to immediate further study as a PhD candidate? 3. For the purposes of academia, is an LLM preferred to an MA?
spoitier posted a topic in AnthropologyI am researching graduate programs and am trying to find something that fits my growing interest in the field of humanitarianism, human rights, disaster response, etc. while also addressing my passion for anthropology and global public health. USF has an MA-or-PhD/MPH option combining these things, but I'm having some trouble finding many other universities that offer extensive training and education in all three areas. Another factor making this search a bit difficult for me is my interest in focusing on infectious diseases. Can anyone out there offer any advice in where else I could look? Thanks in advance!!
Hello everyone! So, I'm at a stage in my life where I'm swinging on a vine and letting the wind blow me from every direction to the other, as I try to decide what areas I should specialize in. My current undergraduate major is Political Science, though I'm planning on doing my Master's in International Affairs. My areas of research interest are three as of now: Peace and Conflict Studies, International Human Rights, Evolving bilateral relations and the significance of international organisations. If any of you peeps are from a Social Science and particularly a political science background and are in the same position I am, or are wading through your Graduate school or Doctorate already, I'd love to hear what you chose as your topic of research and why. Thanks!
Hey everybody, for some reason Ibelieve that the majority of users of this forum are applying to PP/PA programs. I'm just curious about this and wanted to conduct a survey I might have forgotten one or two categories; just tried to make it as generic as possible!
