5 5 MA Politics Duration: one year full time, two years part time The School of Politics and International Relations offers an MA in Political Science, which focuses on the two traditional pillars of the discipline: political theory and comparative politics, but which also builds in our other areas of strength such as European and Irish politics. Comparative politics looks at the European nation- states in a comparative perspective. It analyses regime types, political stability, change and crisis, electoral and party systems. Comparative politics also includes a focus on Irish politics, which has deep roots at UCD, extending back to the nineteenth century, and has been headed in the past by distinguished specialists in the area such as John Whyte and Tom Garvin. Political theory the reflection on the nature and morality of politics is almost as old as politics itself. As part of a human being s appreciation of their condition, it has always been understood as valuable in its own right. More recently, changes in contemporary societies have made such thinking indispensable to participating in the life of one s own state and a increasingly global world. Political theory combines a rigorous approach to analysing problems with an imaginative search for solutions. Thus government, media and other groups with immediate practical concerns increasingly look to theory to find new ways forward in situations of conflict, inequality and global change. SPIRe has a tradition of strength in political theory, addressing issues such as democracy, justice, human rights, citizenship, multiculturalism and immigration, security and terror, freedom and inequality, which call for reflection on the moral implications of politics and knowledge of the history of political thought. Structure The MA in Politics is a 90- credit programme. Full time students must take three 10- credit modules and a 5- credit Dissertation Design module in the first semester, and three 10- credit modules in the second semester. Students must also submit a thesis worth 25- credits. Part time students take a total of 90- credits over the two- year duration of the part- time programme. As the Dissertation Design module is provided to support students writing their thesis, it must be taken in the second year of study. It is advisable for students to take the core modules in Year 1. Please contact your course coordinator about your part- time module choices.

7 7 MSc Politics Duration: one year full time, two years part time The School of Politics and International Relations offers an MSc in Political Science, which focuses on the two traditional pillars of the discipline: political theory and comparative politics (for more information, please see below). The MSc programme is research- oriented. Thus, in addition to the training in the subject- core of the discipline, students in also complete two core modules in qualitative and quantitative research methods. Comparative politics looks at the European nation- states in a comparative perspective. It analyses regime types, political stability, change and crisis, electoral and party systems. Comparative politics also includes a focus on Irish politics, which has deep roots at UCD, extending back to the nineteenth century, and has been headed in the past by distinguished specialists in the area such as John Whyte and Tom Garvin.

9 9 MA Development Studies Duration: one year full time, two years part time The programme is designed to provide participants with an interdisciplinary understanding of the process of development and with a range of skills to enable them to work effectively in this field. The programme is also designed to develop participants existing skills by critically evaluating these from the perspective of a number of disciplines. The aim of development is broadly understood as being about the improvement of quality of life in a world characterised by unprecedented opulence but also by widespread deprivation, destitution and poverty. Development, however, is about more than higher incomes it is a multidimensional process of change in social structures, posing challenges in such areas as the reduction of inequality and inclusion, the expansion of the range of economic and social choices, the progressive realisation of human rights and of progress towards a more sustainable world. The academic subject of Development Studies focuses on processes of social, political and economic change taking place primarily although not exclusively in developing countries. Teaching and research on development is multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary, bringing together academic expertise in politics, economics, agriculture, political economy and other areas, while also drawing on the broader strengths of the School of Politics and International Relations. Structure The MA in Development Studies is a 90- credit programme. Full time students must take three 10- credit modules and a 5- credit Dissertation Design module in the first semester, and three 10- credit modules in the second semester. Students must also submit a thesis worth 25- credits. Part time students take a total of 90- credits over the two- year duration of the part- time programme. As the Dissertation Design module is provided to support students writing their thesis, it must be taken in the second year of study. It is advisable for students to take the core modules in Year 1. Please contact your course coordinator about your part- time module choices.

17 17 MA Nationalism and Ethnic Conflict Duration: one year full time, two years part time This programme uses comparative political science models and methods to analyse patterns of conflict and settlement, with a focus on internal violent conflicts, past and present. Internal conflicts are among the most important factors destabilising entire regions and affecting wider international relations. Equally international and global developments from global economic trends, to climate change, to the rise and fall of empires and states affect the likelihood of internal conflict. One key set of topics is concerned with different models of conflict and settlement, from consociationalism to federalism to partition and the role of international interventions. Another looks at the ways in which oppositional categories and groups in conflict are formed. While internal conflicts are often fought in the name of nationalism and conflicting groups see themselves as ethnic descent groups, the very character of nationalism and ethnicity are complex. This course allows analysis of the different ways that religion, ethnicity and inequality combine to generate violence. Examples range widely, and change from year to year: some of the core texts are concerned with countries from Estonia to India, from Transylvania to Cyprus and from Northern Ireland to the Basque Country. The wide range of expertise in SPIRe feeds into the programme, with its specialist resources in the study of theories of ethnicity, identity, conflict; comparative ethnic conflict; Northern Ireland, Western Europe and relevant cognate specialisms in civic republicanism, justice and human rights, international security, European politics, and development studies. The programme is designed to provide participants with a rigourous understanding of the character, causes and consequences of processes of conflict and settlement and with a range of skills to enable them to continue on to work in this field, for example in international and national NGOs. Funded doctoral and post- doctoral research on conflict in the Global Irish Institute and the Institute for British Irish Studies creates a lively intellectual environment. Students are often offered special topics courses related to research projects and specialist workshops and conferences. Structure The MA in Nationalism and Ethnic Conflict is a 90- credit programme. Full time students must take three 10- credit modules and a 5- credit Dissertation Design module in the first semester, and three 10- credit modules in the second semester. Students must also submit a thesis worth 25- credits. Part time students take a total of 90- credits over the two- year duration of the part- time programme. As the Dissertation Design module is provided to support students writing their thesis, it must be taken in the second year of study. It is advisable for students to take the core modules in Year 1.

21 21 MEconSc European Public Affairs and Law Duration: one year full time (part time option not available) The post- Lisbon Treaty broadening and deepening of the European Union s policy responsibilities, as well as the inclusion of new member states in recent years, have made the EU an increasingly diverse and complex system of regional governance. These developments have created exciting new opportunities for professionals who are capable of working in a cross- national context, who understand the new political, legal, economic and social structures in Europe, and who can engage in innovative processes of policy- making. Drawing on UCD s expertise in these areas, the MEconSc in European Public Affairs and Law is ideal for those seeking to launch or advance a career in national administrations relating to the EU, in the various EU institutions themselves, or elsewhere in the private, public and voluntary spheres. It also provides a strong foundation for further academic research. The MEconSc in European Public Affairs and Law is designed to equip graduates with strong expertise in contemporary European affairs, based on a genuinely inter- disciplinary approach to the study of Europe and the European Union. Close co- operation between the UCD School of Politics and International Relations and the UCD School of Law integrates core modules in the internal and external affairs of the European Union, whilst a complementary core module in European economics and a range of elective options ensure that students will graduate having a facility to engage in debates drawing on multiple perspectives. Students must also submit a thesis in the area of European politics, international relations or public affairs. Students have an opportunity to attend various seminars organised by the UCD School of Politics and International Relations and the UCD Dublin European Institute. Structure The MEconSc in European Public Affairs and Law is a 90- credit programme. Students take 30 credits of coursework three taught modules - per semester. In total, they derive 20 credits from Politics, 20 credits from Law, 10 credits from Economics, and 10 credits from an elective module in these disciplines or Business. To complete the degree students must also take a 5- credit Dissertation Design module, complete a thesis (25 credits).

22 22 MSc Human Rights Duration: one year full time, two years part time In this programme, students learn about one of the most profound and consequential developments in the contemporary world the idea that all people are entitled to certain rights and freedoms simply by virtue of their humanity. This idea, now enshrined in international law and enforced by a plethora of supranational courts and non- governmental organizations, has transformed relations between governments and their citizens in many parts of the world. Even where people s dignity and security are routinely violated and their voices repressed, the idea of human rights remains a powerful catalyst for change. The programme s core modules enable students to approach human rights from multiple disciplinary perspectives, drawing on staff expertise within the School of Politics and International Relations, the School of Law, and other units at UCD. From a philosophical perspective, they evaluate the meaning of the claim that people have rights, various arguments about the sources of rights, debates over the indivisibility vs. hierarchy of rights, and the tension between individual and group rights, among other topics. From a legal perspective, they examine how the idea of human rights has been embodied in treaties, constitutions, and legislation at the national, regional, and global levels, and the legal mechanisms that exist to enforce this law. And from a political science perspective, they explore theories and evidence regarding why and when governments commit to protect human rights, as well as theories and evidence regarding why and when they fulfil or violate these commitments. In addition, students are able to select optional modules related to social contract theory, citizenship, social and international justice, development, international relations, comparative politics and ethno- national conflict. The School has strong connections with governmental and non- governmental organizations in the human rights field in Ireland, across Europe, and further abroad. The MSc in Human Rights thus prepares students for careers with national governments, NGOs and international organisations, as well as journalism and other fields.

24 24 MA Political Theory Duration: one year full time, two years part time Political Theory reflecting on and evaluating political activity and institutions is almost as old as politics itself. As a crucial part of understanding our human condition, political theory has always been held to be a valuable activity. More recently, however, changes in contemporary societies have made such systematic thinking about politics indispensable to understanding and participating in the life of our own state and a newly global world. Issues such as justice, freedom, inequality, democratic participation, human rights, immigration and multiculturalism, security and terror call for consideration of the moral dimension of politics, informed by both contemporary political thinkers and the history of political thought. Political theory has also come increasingly to address the more immediate practical concerns of politics and policy that are of concern to governments, the media, civil society groups and individual citizens. Political theory combines a rigorous approach to analysing these problems with an imaginative search for solutions. It holds out the possibility of finding new ways forward in situations of conflict, inequality and global change. The MA in Political Theory offers an attractive and flexible programme of study whereby students can follow a themed pathway of study, yet avail of options than can either deepen their understanding of their political theory, or diversify their interests into other areas of study. Structure The MA in Political Theory is a 90- credit programme. Full- time students take three 10- credit modules and a shorter 5- credit Dissertation Design module in the first semester, and three 10- credit modules in the second semester. Students in the MA programme take three core subject modules: Theory of Human Rights (first semester), International Political Theory (first semester) and Debates on Citizenship (second semester), In addition, students choose a minimum of two optional modules from a list of theoretical modules offered by the Schools of Politics, Philosophy and Social Justice. One module may be taken from a range of further options (see below). Over the summer, students complete a thesis of approximately 10,000 words. Students are assigned an academic supervisor to help them choose their topic and guide their research. The School organizes research seminars on a regular basis. All graduate students are expected to attend these. Part- time students take a total of 90 credits over the two- year duration of the part- time programme. As the Dissertation Design module is provided to support students writing their thesis, it must be taken in the second year of study. It is advisable for students to take the core modules in Year 1. Please contact your course coordinator about your part- time module choices.

28 28 Graduate Diploma in Development Studies Duration: one year full time, two years part time The aim of development is broadly understood as being about the improvement of quality of life in a world characterised by unprecedented opulence but also by widespread deprivation, destitution and poverty. Development, however, is about more than higher incomes it is a multidimensional process of change in social structures, posing challenges in such areas as the reduction of inequality and inclusion, the expansion of the range of economic and social choices, the progressive realisation of human rights and of progress towards a more sustainable world. The academic subject of Development Studies focuses on processes of social, political and economic change taking place primarily although not exclusively in developing countries. Teaching and research on development is multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary, bringing together academic expertise in politics, economics, agriculture, political economy and other areas, while also drawing on the broader strengths of the School of Politics and International Relations. The Graduate Diploma in Development Studies is designed to provide participants with an interdisciplinary understanding of the process of development and with a range of skills to enable them to work effectively in this field. Unlike the MSc (Development Studies), this programme does not require the completion of a minor thesis. Depending on their performance, aspirations and selection of modules in the first semester (or first year for part- time students), GradDip students can transfer from the graduate diploma into the MA Development Studies. Structure The Graduate Diploma in Development Studies is a 60- credit programme. Full time students must take three 10- credit modules in the first semester and three 10- credit modules in the second semester. A list of core and optional modules is presented below. Part time students take a total of 60- credits over the two- year duration of the part- time programme. It is advisable for students to take the core modules in Year 1. Please contact your course coordinator about your part- time module choices.
