About the course

Study International Security MA, one of the most comprehensive international security programmes in the country. Warwick's Politics and International Studies (PAIS) Department, home to staff at the cutting-edge of research in this field, provides a broad range of modules to choose from.

Melina Dobson

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.
