    We are pleased to announce our new international one-year MA programs taught in English. Applications are now being accepted for the 2013-2014 academic year.

    Short-Term Programs for Graduate Students
    Students who have completed their undergraduate degree but would like to further their studies are welcome to enroll for a semester or year in the International School. These students benefit from all of the components of the regular International School Program, but have the opportunity to enrich their studies by designing a directed-reading course or independent research project in a topic of their choice. The program for recent BA graduates / current MA students is ideal for students who want to explore subjects they were not able to study in their undergraduate degrees as well as students who are looking for more experience before applying to a graduate program.

    Academics
    Students are expected to take between three to five courses a semester. In addition to the courses that we offer, students in the program are welcome to enroll in any of our specialty programs: Honors Programs in Psychology, and Peace & Conflict Studies; Global Law Program; and the Internship Program. All of the courses in the International School are taught in English and are fully accredited.

    • PhD - Doctor of Philosophy
      The degree of Doctor of Philosophy usually requires three years of full-time study. Students devote time mainly to research, although they are expected to participate in seminars in advanced subjects and to acquire in-depth knowledge through course work and independent study. At the end of the first year of study doctoral students are required to pass a candidacy examination. The examination tests the ability of the student to pursue independent and original research in his chosen subject. Toward the end of his doctoral studies the student is required to submit a final thesis and pass an oral defense examination.
