Jointly delivered by the prestigious Law School and the highly ranked and regarded Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion (PPR), Diplomacy and International Law (DL) degree offered at Lancaster University enables you to deepen your understanding of the social, legal, economic and political issues playing out on the world’s stage. Designed to fit with professionals working full or part-time, it can be studied over one (full-time) or two (part-time) years.
The Law School is home to the Centre for Crime, Law and Justice, the Centre for Law and Society, and the Centre for Child and Family Justice. These influential centres underpin our postgraduate teaching and you will have access to the much sought-after expertise of academics working at the forefront of research into politics, international relations, legal and socio-legal issues.
Your core modules at Diplomacy and International Law (Distance Learning) are: Theory and Concepts in Diplomacy and Foreign Policy; International Law; Issues and Practice in Diplomacy and Foreign Policy; Theory and Methods in Postgraduate Studies; and a Dissertation. You will choose between International Human Rights and The Law of International Organisations as a further elective module. The dissertation is an independent, in-depth inquiry into a research topic of your choosing. The topic will link to a key legal or political question or issue and may also directly relate to your professional/career interests.
This is your opportunity to make a contribution to the academic community with new, original research and writing. A dissertation supervisor will provide you with support and introduce you to relevant material and research; their personal research interests will closely align with your chosen topic wherever possible.
