Course content

Maritime Security is one of the most dynamic and expanding sectors in the security industry with an impact on development efforts, insurance, international law, and global shipping. It encompasses the headline issue of piracy alongside other security challenges such as trafficking by sea, illegal fishing and port security.

Our postgraduate programmes in Maritime Security (PG Cert, PG Dip, MA) are shaped by current research-active staff and real world events. Aimed to be delivered in a friendly and supportive learning environment, these highly interactive programmes provide you with the opportunity to understand and analyse current issues and should aim to develop your skills in response.

“This MA – a pioneering programme of study focusing on some of the most pressing and critical challenges in the dynamic field of Maritime Security. Our Centre is at the forefront of this research agenda, using teaching to enhance the knowledge and actions of practitioners around the world.” - Dr Robert McCabe, Current Course Director, MA Maritime Security.

The MA is a blended learning course – a mixture of distance and face-to-face study – allowing you the flexibility to integrate your studies with work and personal commitments. We also provide the opportunity to study through our fast-track (APEL) route which can allow you to gain accreditation for your prior experience and learning, including what you have achieved in your career so far.
