This course will provide a theoretical and empirical understanding of international security and international relations. Key modules on this degree include: International Relations Theory, International Security and War Games.
An important part of the MA is the dissertation which is submitted in September. You choose your own topic and have an individual supervisor who gives advice on all aspects of writing and researching a dissertation. We also organise a Postgraduate Day in the spring when you get the opportunity to discuss your dissertation with staff and fellow students.
This MA will help you to develop a range of valuable transferable skills, particularly if you are seeking a professional career in international security, whether as a policy analyst, journalist or researcher. The degree will also appeal if you are intending to pursue postgraduate research in international security and international relations.
