Call for Students: Batch 2 Undergraduate Certificate Course in politics and social sciences

Institute of Human Rights and Peace Studies (IHRP), Mahidol University, in coordination with Yangon School of Political Science (YSPS) and HRERP, is opening applications for Myanmar students who have a strong interest pursuing in extracurricular studies at certificate level during 2021-2022. The courses offered target undergraduate academic level encompassing the courses of social and political sciences.

The Online Certificate Course is designed and developed by Professors and Senior Lecturers of the IHRP and YSPS in collaboration with HRERP. The course is blended with pre-recorded lectures and live discussions. Each course is the equivalent of a second or third year undergraduate academic course of 3 credit points.* The students need to dedicate around 6-8 hours on weekly basis with additional self-study for class preparation over 5 months. To graduate from the course students must pass the necessary assessment. Upon graduation students will receive a certificate from IHRP, Mahidol University and YSPS.

*Mahidol University and YSPS cannot guarantee these courses can be converted into credit points at other universities, though they will be the equivalent of ASEAN 3 credit point courses, or 5 ECTs.

The course will start at the end of February until June 2022.

The courses are intended for students who would like to significantly enhance their knowledge in political and social science studies.
