Course content

Internationally and domestically, security is among the most pressing concerns facing states. Adding to the complexity, is the increasingly broad definition of 'security' as new challenges emerge – for example in relation to climate change – while 'traditional' ones – such as terrorism – are reconstructed, along with the heightened interdependencies between states and within their critical infrastructures.

This MSc/LLM in International Relations, Law & Security introduces and familiarises students with contemporary issues relating to the course topics, examining them through legal and political viewpoints. It reflects contemporary policies by taking a broad view of ‘security’, rather than simply focusing on traditional areas of concern.

International Relations, Law & Security offers a genuinely interdisciplinary experience, which sets it apart from other MSc courses on international security and LLM courses on domestic and international security law.

The core module is co-taught across the Schools of Government & Public Policy and Law, and students are required to choose at least one optional class from each school.

Your experience is further enhanced by learning alongside students from other disciplinary backgrounds.
