Major requirements:

  • 20 EC: complete two of the following core Major tracks: International Law, Human Rights & Society, and Integration & Statehood. Since you will have already completed the 100-level courses of each of these tracks (see above), you will need to complete an additional 10 EC (200-level course + 300-level course) to complete one track.

  • 10/15 EC: complete one additional track, either a third core track or one of the co-convened tracks

  • 15 EC: complete Research Design (IJ) and two of the following methodology courses: Legal Methods Lab, Advocacy & Litigation, or Qualitative Research Methods. Note that we strongly recommend that all students take Legal Methods Lab as it offers foundational skills for the major. We also suggest that all students intending on using qualitative methods (e.g. interviews/focus groups/surveys etc.) for their Capstone take the Qualitative Research Methods course.

  • 10 EC: Capstone

  • 10/15 EC: complete additional IJ courses, one of which at the 300-level

Note: it is mandatory to complete at least four courses at the 300-level
