The degree is intended to be neither a totally academic nor a fully vocational one. It stresses theoretical research but insists on relating it to empirically rich phenomena from the social world. Unlike mainstream Masters programmes in International Relations, which are loaded in favour of theoretical research or ‘professional’ course work and internships, MA DLB strikes a balance between the two and requires students to be versed in both domains. A number of core and elective courses in this programme’s curriculum  have research essay assignments, which are expected to be at the frontier of ongoing scholarly debates and simultaneously accessible to policymakers in India and abroad. A separate category of assignments in the form of policy memos will be a common feature of many courses, developing student abilities to make convincing pitches to governments and organisations of various hues. 

JSIA has a dedicated team of faculty and staff to assist students with obtaining internships, in both India and abroad, as per student preferences and interests. Foreign Language training is an essential requirement, and language classes are on offer through the duration of the programme. Students have the option of choosing among Mandarin (Chinese), French, Spanish and Arabic. The typical format for a class at JSIA is a discussion based seminar on the principle of student-centered teaching. Students are encouraged to engage in critical thinking and lively debate, to draw links between theory, history & current affairs and to become better aware of the relationship between power, politics, business, law and justice.
