  1. Hi all - hoping for some advice on choosing between SIPA's MIA program and SAIS's MA program. I'm interested in studying human rights and conflict prevention/resolution and I'm hoping to work in an advocacy-based NGO after finishing grad school (though I'm also interested in multilateral work or possibly federal gov work under a different administration). I've visited both schools and overall had great impressions of both, so I'm not sure how to make a final decision. My current pro-con list is below, but I'd love to hear others' thoughts on what I should put the most weight on or if there are other factors I should be considering! Pro-SAIS: I'd get to spend my first year living in Bologna and traveling through Europe and North Africa during breaks, which seems like a really amazing, unique opportunity More tight-knit cohort from spending a year abroad together SAIS seems more prestigious than SIPA, though perhaps only marginally I live in DC now and probably want to continue working here long-term, so having a mostly DC-based network would be useful Their program is smaller than SIPA's and the classes seem smaller in general Pro-SIPA: I got scholarships from both schools, but SIPA will be about $10k cheaper/year* (but I can still afford either with no debt) Being close to the UN and having school connections there would be a great way for me to get internship experience in a multilateral org and figure out if I like the sector Studying in NYC for 2 years would be a great way for me to test out living in the city and see if it's somewhere I'd be interested in living long-term (since most jobs that interest me are in DC or NYC, and I already know what I like and don't like about DC life) Their "human rights and humanitarian policy" concentration perfectly aligns with my career goals (I can study human rights at SAIS, it would just be under the "international law and orgs" concentration so it might be a bit less focused) I could cross-register with Columbia Law School and take courses in international law *Assuming I get the FLAS fellowship, which I find out about next week. If I don't get it, I can't afford SIPA and in that case the decision is easy! Thanks for sharing any thoughts you have 😃
  2. Has anyone heard from Columbia about the Human Rights Masters? I'm dying!
  3. Hey there! As it says, I'm trying to decide between Saarland University (Germany) and the University of York (UK) for an LLM in Human Rights Law. The aspects I'm most intrigued about in my grad program is that the Master's has a practical focus, either through outside opportunities for practical engagement with human rights law, or through integration in the courses themselves, or both! Q: One thing that is important to me is also the career opportunities after graduating. I'm having difficulty finding any information to be able to compare the universities on this basis, so any advice on how to find information or specific things to look for would be great. The cost between the universities is also a fairly significant difference. Tuition for York is around $20,000 (USD), and $6720 (USD) for Saarland. I'm coming out of undergrad with no debt, which would be great to continue, but also understand that (compared to my fellow American students), $20K in debt isn't all that much? Q: What I'd like to know is what people's experience is with debt after graduate programs, particularly those who went/are going into fields with low/moderate starting salaries. Did it impact your decision to accept or not accept a job based on whether you'd be able to pay off your loans quicker/in full? Q: Also, what has been current or past students experience with the LLM at York and Saarland? Thanks for reading!
  4. I am struggling to make a decision about what graduate school to attend. I completed my BA(Hons) in Human Rights and because it is not a traditional discipline, I worry about what to pick for an MA program as my end goal is apply for a PhD. I applied and was admitted to: York University for Socio-Legal Studies Carleton University for Legal Studies University of Calgary for Political Science Queens University for Political and Legal Thought I am stuck between Calgary and Carleton. Calgary has been courting me very hard and has offered 39,000$ in funding over two years. I have a supervisor who studies my exact interests in political violence and genocide, but the program itself it quite conservative leaning. It is a traditional political science program, which is not bad, it is just not what I am used too. Carleton has reached out to me and has offered 32,000$ in funding over two years. I have two potential supervisors who seem very nice, but their focus is a little different than my proposed course of study. The program is interdisciplinary and fits more closely with the human rights focus I am used too. I am worried that by choosing this program I will be closing doors for PhD opportunities. Carleton also offers better psychological health services compared to Calgary. Any advice on how to make a decision would be appreciated.
  5. Hey 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?
  6. I 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!!
  7. 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!
  8. 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!
