PROGRAMME SUMMARY

• Educating and developing future leaders and decision makers
• Team taught by all SSI academics, it will involve leading academics from across the University and senior practitioners from the private sector, intelligence community, the military, NGOs, international organisations and across government
• Innovative teaching includes crisis management simulations with practitioners and at NATO Allied Rapid Reaction Corps HQ
• Fieldtrips to the Balkans and Brussels to view strategic security issues at first hand
• Exposure to Whitehall and participation in joint conferences with the Royal United Services Institute
• Excellent networking and mentor and peer support

FOCUS ON CONTEMPORARY SECURITY

Focusing on insecurity in the contemporary world, you will examine the nature of strategy and how it relates to both policy and action in a fast-evolving and volatile international system. This is a world where questions are being asked of traditional institutions and levers of state-craft. There is a pressing need for creative, disciplined thinkers able to turn their ideas into action.

The MA considers threats to national, international and human security, ranging from interstate conflicts to more diverse contemporary security challenges, such as terrorism, organised crime, resource denial and cyber security. You will investigate the drivers of instability, such as competition for resources in an age of increasing demand and financial austerity and look in detail at how the instruments of strategy, such as diplomacy and strategic communications, might be more effectively integrated.
You will learn how to design and manage strategic responses to crises, considering how decisions are made and the causes and consequences of miscalculation. This is not a war studies degree, but you will become familiar with the various forms of violent conflict, and learn through case studies, how the consequences are managed and, ideally, resolved.

STRATEGY IN ACTION

The way we teach this programme is unique. Our aim is not just to expand your theoretical knowledge but to develop conceptual and practical skills in strategic analysis, planning and leadership which you will be able to apply wherever you decide to make your career (http://www.exeter.ac.uk/strategy/ma/learningandteaching/).

The MA, is taught by a carefully selected mix of internationally-respected academic experts and leading practitioners from the public, private and third sectors. Learning will have practical application, relevance and be informed by the latest thinking and hard-won experience.

Drawing on simulation and scenario-planning techniques employed by industry, government and the military, you will learn how to design and implement strategy in conditions mirroring the complexity, uncertainty and pressure experienced by senior leaders everywhere: strategy making is a transferable skill in many sectors.
Participating in exercises run on campus and, for example, at the NATO Allied Rapid Reaction Corps HQ, you will hone the strategic skills demanded of those holding top positions in international organisations, NGOs, the private sector, government and the security sector, and those who support them.

FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE

To learn more about strategy in action, you will visit international organisations and engage with think tanks and policymakers to hear from and debate with those involved in dealing with insecurity, conflict and its aftermath. Overseas field trips to post-conflict zones in the Balkans and elsewhere in Europe will give you an enhanced and intensely personal perspective of the complexities, dilemmas and consequences of security strategy (http://www.exeter.ac.uk/strategy/ma/learningandteaching/fieldtrips/).

Our innovative interdisciplinary approach will equip you with a multi-dimensional understanding of the nature of confrontation, crisis and conflict, including the political, legal, social, economic, information and military levers.

The MA will provide you with invaluable skills, insight, knowledge, and connections (via our unrivalled network of Honorary Professors and Fellows http://www.exeter.ac.uk/strategy/people/honoraryappointments/) if you wish to pursue a career in policy-making, diplomacy, the private sector, in an NGO, in the military, the media – indeed, any environment requiring strategic acumen, insight and leadership.

As an MA Applied Security Strategy graduate, we hope you will be part of a life-long network of learning and shared experience fostered by teamwork and collaboration on the course and continued through an enduring affiliation with the Strategy and Security Institute.

Brussels School of International Studies

The Brussels School of International Studies (BSIS) is a multidisciplinary postgraduate School of the University of Kent bringing together the disciplines of politics, international relations, law and economics to provide in-depth analysis of international problems such as conflict, security, development, migration and the political economy and legal basis of a changing world order.

We are a truly international School, our students are drawn from over 50 countries. The strong international composition of our staff and student body contributes significantly both to the academic as well as to the social experience at BSIS. The value-added of a location in Brussels is the opportunity to expose students of international issues to the working of major international organisations such as the EU and NATO and the many international and non-governmental organisations based in Brussels. Students have the added opportunity of undertaking an internship with one of these organisations.

Course structure

We are committed to offering flexible study options at the School and enable you to tailor your degree to meet your needs by offering start dates in September and January; full- and part-time study; split-site options, and allowing students to combine two fields of study leading to a degree that reflects both disciplines.

The MA in Political Strategy and Communication allows students to choose secondary areas of specialisation from the range of programmes offered at BSIS (http://www.kent.ac.uk/brussels/studying/index.html). Thus, a focused programme of study can be constructed by studying Political Strategy and Communication in the context of International Relations; International Conflict and Security; Human Rights Law, and other subject areas we cover.

This leads to the award of an MA degree in, for example, 'Political Strategy and Communication with Human Rights Law'.

Programme aims

The programme aims to:

- provide you with a research-active teaching environment which provides a good grounding in the study of social science in general, in political strategy, and in the communication of political positions in particular

- offer you a critical perspective of the interplay between international relations and European politics as they relate to the process of creating a strategy for dealing with political issues, and communicating effectively the issues and positions on the basis of that strategy, in order to influence outcomes at the European and national levels

- ensure that you acquire a solid understanding of methodologies for the study of social science in general, and in the application of those understandings to the study of political strategy in particular

- ensure that you acquire a solid understanding of major theoretical approaches to policymaking and policy analysis, the historical development of the contemporary European policy landscape, and the application of theoretical and historical knowledge to the analysis and understanding of contemporary issues and cases in the field, with particular emphasis on the manner in which policies, positions, perspectives, and attitudes are communicated

- ensure that you acquire the necessary skills for an advanced assessment of contemporary problems in European politics, society, and economy, and their solutions

- develop your general research skills and personal skills (transferable skills).

Research areas

Our research interests span a broad spectrum of the discipline, with particular strengths in the fields of conflict analysis and resolution, political theory and European politics. The strength of the School’s research culture is reflected in the numerous books and articles published and in the existence of its three core research groups: Conflict, Security and Human Rights; Comparative Politics; and Political and Social Thought. We also host four University-recognised research centres: the Conflict Analysis Research Centre (CARC), the Global Europe Centre (GEC), the Centre for Critical Thought (CCT), and the Centre for Federal Studies (CFS).

All members of staff can supervise theses leading to research degrees. We encourage potential research students to refer to our postgraduate research handbook (pdf) for detailed information (http://www.kent.ac.uk/politics/postgraduates/research-programmes/pgrhandbook.pdf).

In 2011, the University successfully applied for ESRC recognition as a provider of doctoral training in political science and international studies (and other areas of the social sciences) as part of a consortium. As a result, we are now part of the South East ESRC Doctoral Training Centre, making us one of the key training outlets in our subject in the UK.

Careers

The School of Politics and International Relations has a dedicated Employability, Placements and Internships Officer who works with students to develop work-based placements in a range of organisations. Centrally, the Careers and Employability Service can help you plan for your future by providing one-to-one advice at any stage of your postgraduate studies.

Many students at our Brussels centre who undertake internships are offered contracts in Brussels immediately after graduation. Others have joined their home country’s diplomatic service, entered international organisations, or have chosen to undertake a ‘stage’ at the European Commission, or another EU institution.

Our graduates have gone on to careers in academia, local and national government and public relations.

Kent has an excellent record for postgraduate employment: over 94% of our postgraduate students who graduated in 2013 found a job or further study opportunity within six months.

The main educational aims of the programme include:

To provide candidates with postgraduate level knowledge and skills in the area of national (UK and Irish), European and International (WTO, World Bank and UNCITRAL) Public Procurement Law and Strategy.
