Course content

The role of diplomacy in international security cannot be overstated, and a strong understanding of global governance and international affairs is increasingly vital for security professionals. With new resolutions adopted by United Nations members to provide and share tools used to detect terrorism, the rise of globalisation creates a need for an international diplomatic approach to security.

Our postgraduate course in Diplomacy and Security Studies is designed to equip students with an industry-specific toolkit of international relations and foreign policy, as applicable to security and counter-terrorism. This unique course allows you to apply diplomatic theory to current issues in global crime and gives you a practical toolkit to approach real world scenarios. Students use an online classroom to learn alongside a global community, giving you first hand experiences from other countries and organisations.

Training in diplomacy and security is required for international relations and negotiations to prevent global conflict. Long gone are the days of two competing power blocs – today’s political landscape is complex, and requires skilled professionals to navigate the new dynamics. Discover the interlaced nature of diplomacy, intelligence, and counter-terrorism in this online course.
