UQ offering new dual degree in international relations and conflict studies

New year, new options! The University of Queensland has announced that it is now offering a new dual degree: the Master of International Relations/Master of Peace and Conflict Studies.

This two-year dual degree program that allows you to obtain two highly sought after and complementary qualifications. The combined Master of International Relations/Master of Peace and Conflict Studies allows you to pursue a unique program of studies, providing you with an understanding of the broad structures and dynamics of the international system combined with more specialised skills and knowledge of critical issues and debates relating to peace and conflict, conflict resolution and mediation, and peace-building.

By studying these programs as a dual, students will acquire two degrees in a shorter time frame than if studying them individually. They can also be taken as separate 18-month programs if preferred.

These two cognate degree programs each have a distinctive focus. The Master of International Relations degree provides students with an advanced understanding of key issues and challenges in contemporary world politics, international security, foreign affairs and global, international and regional governance. It provides students with an opportunity to develop skills in international political analysis, political risk evaluation, and in addressing bilateral, regional and global policy objectives.

The Master of Peace and Conflict Studies builds knowledge of the forces that generate contemporary conflict and the process and practices that contribute to conflict prevention, resolution and peace-building. It also equips students with practical skills to engage in conflict analysis and resolution, peacekeeping and peace building in the contemporary global context.

The program is delivered by the UQ Graduate Centre in Governance and International Affairs, a school that is recognised internationally and nationally as a leader in both international relations and peace and conflict studies research and teaching. You will have access to world-class teachers and researchers who are in touch with industry partners and participate in regular public commentary and debate in their fields. You can also gain hands-on experience through the internship program—an opportunity to work closely with an organisation in Australia or overseas.

Studying this dual master program will provide you with a global perspective and with the advanced analytical and practical skills to prepare you for your future career. Graduates have gone on to work in areas such as diplomacy, government, think-tanks, the UN and non-governmental organisations as well as the media.

Location: Brisbane, Queensland
Intakes: February and July each year

Working in the UQ Speech Pathology Simulation Clinic

Speech pathology focuses on the management of communication and/or swallowing difficulties. Communication problems can occur in the areas of speech, language, voice, fluency (stuttering), hearing or literacy.

Within a “typical workplace environment,” UQ speech pathology students get hands-on practice during their time in the speech pathology simulation clinic. Like real life, students can assess patients with communication and swallowing difficulties in a hospital setting. Simulation clinics offer a number of benefits to the students, including learning to practice new skills, the opportunity for repetition of skill development, and the opportunity to gain a broad range of feedback to practice those skills before they need to use them in a real workplace environment.

About the UQ Speech Pathology program

The UQ speech pathology program is an accelerated program for students who have already completed an undergraduate degree. The program 2.5 years in length and will prepare graduates for a career in speech path across any of the diverse areas in which speech pathologists practice, such as education, health or private practice.

UQ exercise sports science student does his placement in the Canadian Rockies

We’re so used to hearing about Canadians going to study abroad, but what happens when an Australian chooses to study in Canada?

As expected, it’s about snow. But not just your run-of-the-mill snow stories about Canada. You see, recent UQ exercise sports science graduate Jordan Pearce decided to do his placement in Canada—one of the best places in the world to study snowboarding! Here’s Jordan’s story:

Completing my practicum in the Canadian Rockies was a dream come true.

Not only did I get to snowboard some of the best ski terrain in the world, but I got to work alongside world-renowned snowboard instructors and make lifelong friendships with people from every corner of the globe.

UQ Sports Science student placement in the Canadian Rockies

Why I chose Canada

As part of my Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Sciences (Hons) I had to complete a 400-hour practicum placement. I chose to complete mine at Castle Mountain Resort, Canada, for a number of reasons. The biggest reason was that I wanted to experience what it would be like living and working in a completely different country. And secondly, I love snowboarding, so spending a season in the Rockies seemed like the perfect choice for me. And what a snow season it was! We received 10 metres of snow and one of the best seasons on record! See a glimpse of the snow (and me) in this local TV interview.

What was involved

My placement involved working as a fully qualified snowboard instructor teaching beginners the basic techniques of snowboarding. If you have never snowboarded before, there is a science behind the technique—balance and stability, impulse, momentum, angular motion, moment of inertia, gravity, friction—they all have a role to play in mastering this sport. For instance, one of the first things people need to achieve is a centred, mobile stance to control their speed easier and minimise falling. But as I quickly found out, it’s not as easy as simply telling students that. A good teacher needs to relate it to a sensation that will make sense to them. My example of this is to use the sensation of cowboy knees, this might give an 8-year-old a sensation that achieves a centred and mobile stance. Where as, if you try using biomechanical and anatomical terminology, such as, pretend you have varus malalignment, the 8-year-old is not going to know what you are talking about.

The highlights

I loved teaching the students these skills but also teaching them that perseverance and hard work is what really leads to success. Teaching others also allowed me to progress in my own snowboarding technique. It was cool to learn by doing and receive advice on coaching models such as demonstrating and explaining skills and positive and effective feedback.

As an added bonus, I was fortunate to further enhance my own snowboarding skills by completing the Level 1 qualification in snowboarding in Canada. My instructor had 10 years’ experience, was previously an international border cross racer, and had a degree in kinesiology (the equivalent of a sports science degree in Australia).

A typical working day on the slopes

9 – 9:30 a.m. – Meet our Level 4 snowboard instructor at the ski school for a briefing on the coaching outcomes of the day.

9:30 – 10:30 a.m. – Working in Little Castle Club (LCC), which are usually 3- to 6-year-olds in groups of one or two. With LCC a particular focus is on safety, such as helping with loading lift and controlling speed. Having fun is always paramount!

10:30 – 12:30 p.m. – Beginner or Novice school group or normal ski school class with around 3 to 6 students aged between 6 and 16 years old. The class focus was on the basics of snowboard setup and safety, drills on how to slide and control speed, and how to complete heel and toe side turns and link them successfully.

12:30 – 1:30 p.m. – Lunch at the day lodge or at home.

1:30 – 3:30 p.m. – Intermediate ski school class or private lesson for ages 12 years and older. In these classes, an initial biomechanical assessment of a limitation in their riding was completed. Once a limitation is established a drill to focus on that limitation is considered. An example could be that the client is turning with the upper body and needs a drill to promote initiating a turn more with the lower body.

3:30 – 4 p.m. – One quick shred by myself to finish the day.

The benefits of going abroad

It cannot be ignored that it’s considerably more expensive to do your placement overseas, but the benefits make it so worth it. I have grown both personally and professionally from this experience in so many ways. Living overseas and being a snowboard instructor has taught me the ability to adapt readily to any situation and be future-focused. Understanding a client’s motivations, goals and feelings will enable you to adjust your session accordingly and provide future drills for the client to focus on after the lesson. You knew you were going well and didn’t have to change anything if the client had a big smile on their face—that’s if the face mask wasn’t covering it up. After all, having fun is the most important goal!

Assessing your options

I think it is important when selecting your placement that you choose something you are passionate about and in which you might want a career in the future. But enjoying the experience cannot be underestimated. I was able to check out mountains with newly made friends: Whistler, Sunshine Village, Lake Louise, Mount Norquay, Kicking Horse; a personal favourite after Castle Mountain, of course. Castle Mountain was big on staff parties and social events and its small employee size compared to other resorts (160 with about 30 from Australia) in Canada meant you knew everyone. Doing my placement overseas didn’t just open a new career path but also allowed me to travel to Canada, the US, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Cuba. If you are ever considering placement in Canada, I would highly recommend it.
