The Master of Research (MRes) in Security, Conflict and Justice draws together the University of Bath’s combined strengths in security studies with expertise in human rights, conflict and violence, and cultural diversity.
On completion of this programme, students will:
- be familiar with key concepts and theories that underpin an interdisciplinary understanding of security, conflict and governance.
- be able to use knowledge of concepts and research skills to inform research and analysis in the areas of security, conflict and governance.
- have knowledge of contemporary security, conflict and governance problems and how they emerge at sub-national, national and supra-national levels, and how these levels are linked.
- be familiar with, and be able to respond to, demands of carrying out research in international contexts and among sensitive or vulnerable stakeholders caught up in specific conflict situations.
The programme aims to equip students for careers as professional researchers in either academic or non-academic environments, by developing core research skills. Students will be encouraged to review and critically evaluate approaches to research and their application, and to identify and investigate their own original research questions.
- South West Doctoral Training Centre
This MRes is accredited by the Economics & Social Research Council (ESRC), specifically, as part of the larger South West Doctoral Training Centre (SWDTC). It is a collaborative, interdisciplinary programme, delivered by all three universities (Bath, Bristol and Exeter), building on the research strengths of each institution through the inclusion of collaborative units (delivered jointly by the three institutions).
The MRes can be taken as a course in its own right, or as part of the 1 + 3 (MRes + MPhil/PhD) pathway, which includes further collaborative elements with the universities of Bristol and Exeter.
Given the interdisciplinary nature of this programme, successful graduates could proceed onto an MPhil/PhD in one of several areas/departments, specifically:
- Department of Politics, Languages & International Studies
- Department of Social & Policy Sciences
If applying for an MRes/PhD (the 1 + 3 programme) applicants should indicate on the Application Form, their preferred MPhil/PhD route.
Progression from the MRes to the MPhil/PhD stage is dependent on achieving an acceptable level of achievement (typically an overall average of 60% on at least the taught component of the MRes).
