Traditionally its terrain has focused on concerns about the stability of the states’ system, the use of force, nuclear proliferation, military strategy, intelligence and the distribution of resources.

Born out of boldness, imagination and collaboration, the University of Warwick is a world-leading university with the highest academic and research standards. We’re constantly highly ranked amongst the UK’s and the world’s greatest universities. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework placed us 7th among UK research universities, meaning you’ll learn alongside academics on the cusp of new thinking.
The reason I chose to study towards my MA at PAIS was its outstanding reputation in security studies. During my first year of study here, I benefited more than anything from a vast, very patient support network of both academic and administrative staff. I also made amazing friends and have some fantastic memories of that time. So much so that it was natural for me to return to Warwick for my PhD last October. My thesis takes a broader approach to the topic I researched in my MA dissertation, which explored Secrecy, Power and the Impact of Social Media. I’m certain that I would have never attempted this next step without the encouragement of my supervisors Professor Richard Aldrich and Dr Chris Moran. What’s more, it is because of the opportunities, support and inspiration I have found at Warwick that I am keen to pursue a career in academia.
