Months of entry
Benefit from our combined strengths and expertise in security studies, human rights, conflict and violence and cultural diversity.
The course aims to equip students for careers as professional researchers in either academic or non-academic environments, by developing core research skills. We'll encourage you to review and critically evaluate approaches to research and their application, and to identify and investigate your own original research questions.
You'll become familiar with the key concepts and theories that underpin an interdisciplinary understanding of security, conflict and human rights, and will be able to use your knowledge to inform research and analysis in these areas.
You will also learn about contemporary problems and how they emerge at sub-national, national and supra-national levels, and how these levels are linked.
By the end of the course you should be able to respond to the demands of carrying out research in international contexts and among sensitive or vulnerable stakeholders caught up in specific conflict situations.
