The OIS Masters Programme is intended for students who have either attended the OIS Honours Programme or come from other, related academic programmes and are interested in the study of institutions. This programme focuses on mastery of broader theoretical debates as well as the process of developing a research design and conducting their own research.
The Programme is made up of one advanced theory core course—Advanced Concepts in Organisational and Institutional Studies—and one methods and thesis development course, as well as electives. Students are required to submit a 20.000 to 25.000 word research essay.
All students must complete 180 credits, comprising the course in Advanced Concepts in Organisational and Institutional Studies (30 credits), the Advanced Research Methods in Organisational and Institutional Studies, one elective course of 30 credit and a research report (90 credits).
