Bilingual Master in International and European Studies: International Relations, EU, Migrations and Human Rights 21 marzo 2018
The University of Cádiz Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence presents the Bilingual Master in International and European Studies: International Relations, EU, Migrations and Human Rights – Máster Bilingüe en Estudios Internacionales y Europeos: Relaciones Internacionales, UE, Inmigración y Derechos Humanos, directed by Dr. Alejandro del Valle, Full Professor in International Public Law and International Relations in the University of Cadiz and Dra. Inmaculada González, Professor in International Public Law and International Relations, which will be taught from January 2019.
This Master will be launched under the commitment between the University of Cadiz and the European Commission within the Framework of the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence, and it comes with the vocation of being an original postgraduate program in the University of Cadiz. The innovation of this academic offer is highlighted not only due to its cutting-edge theoretical and practical training in the area of International Relations and contemporary Migration policies, but also for its remarkable internationalization purpose; since it is the only bilingual English-Spanish postgraduate degree in the University of Cadiz, Andalucía and Spain, in these cross curricular areas with great practical incidence.
This Program was originally designed within the framework of the Jean Monnet Chair on Borders and Migrations, and now it is offered in its fourth edition, completing the Social Science and Law Studies academic offer in the University of Cadiz, in the area of International Relations and International Law. Due to its interdisciplinary bilingual condition, this Master’s has three fundamental features:
- It strengthens the bilingual teaching –mainly in English- in postgraduate studies in the University of Cadiz, including courses taught entirely in English with a predominantly international-legal profile for International Relations. The level of bilingualism is expected to reach 65% English and 35% Spanish.
- It studies the complex connections of interdependence between International Relations and the current public policies on migration.
- It is suitable with the reality of today’s society through the combination of key knowledge about international relations and the European Union on one hand; and on the other – migration, asylum, refugee and border European and Spanish policies, while bearing in mind the protection of Human Rights.
This Master’s is open to all who are in possession of a Bachelor’s or Graduate degree, preferably in the area of Social and Legal Sciences and with special priority to those with University degree in Law and Social Work studies. In any case, this degree is aimed at students who have a special interest in completing their professional and academic training from an internationalist perspective, as it will allow graduates from different branches to choose their specialization according to their labour expectations, linked to international organizations and institutions, diplomacy, officials of national or international administrations, international experts and agents; as well as to international Spanish administrations and non-governmental organization specialized in the field of international migration and human rights; or private entities (such as companies, Think tanks…).
