Description

If you want to pursue a research-intensive career or doctoral studies, including under the ESRC 1+3 scheme, then this ESRC-recognised research-training programme is designed for you. The programme draws on recognised expertise in international institutions, security, gender, political philosophy, theories of rights, and ethics and normative theory, as well as a wide variety of country and regional expertise. The programme covers the same subject-specific material as the MSc in Human Rights & International Politics  and also provides additional advanced training in social research methods – ideal if you wish to pursue a PhD or a career in social research. The research training is delivered by the College of Social Sciences so you benefit from teaching by experts in particular methods. You will be offered the opportunity to participate in a 5-day study trip to Geneva to visit the UN and non-governmental human rights organisations. You will benefit from access to a number of organisations within and beyond the University, including the Glasgow Human Rights Network; The Glasgow Refugee, Asylum & Migration Network; The Glasgow Centre for International Development; and the annual International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival.   The degree is genuinely interdisciplinary in content and structure, and is designed to ensure that you will encounter both legal and political perspectives. You can choose to focus on one domain more than the other.
