Course content

This MA course in International Security allows you to specialise in an important aspect of world politics. It covers both the traditional focus on the security of states and more contemporary debates centred on ‘human security’ in a variety of contexts.
You will be encouraged to think beyond ‘bullets and bombs’ to consider a range of practices that contribute to our understandings of security and insecurity. It also provides a sound grounding in relevant research methods. As a postgraduate programme, the integration between research and teaching is a crucial part of the quality of the experience.
Students with a postgraduate degree in International Security will be well-suited to careers in a variety of professions, including government, non-governmental organisations, charity organisations, civil service, international organisations, law and the trade unions.
