Each participating student is responsible for finding a master's dissertation thesis supervisor at the Graduate Institute within the first month of the programme, but students are encouraged to reach out to faculty well in advance.
In this one-year programme, students will typically complete five elective courses in the first semester and complete a master's thesis and internship/field work in the second semester. Students will also have the opportunity to take an optional French language course beginning in August before fall classes begin on 15 September.
