MSc Conflict Studies


Course Description

About the MSc programme

The MSc Conflict Studies is dedicated to the analysis of violent conflict and its management or resolution. Its interests range from the interaction of high-level international, domestic and local politics, to the ideological, cultural and political economy factors in violent conflict. Faculty are pedagogical and methodological pluralists, interested in explaining the causes, dynamics and outcomes of conflict and developing new perspectives on the institutional and non-institutional means by which conflicts can be better managed.

Conflict Studies has at its core some fundamental questions about what causes violent conflict. Why does it happen when it does and where it does? How and why do conflicts change over time? What can be done to manage or resolve a conflict? What is the role of international politics, or civil society? We aim to address these major questions that are pivotal to the comparative study of politics. The involvement of leading experts in the field will provide you with insights and critical thinking on the latest theoretical developments, research, and best policy practices.

Graduate destinations

Previous graduates have developed careers in the policy world in governments and public service, international organisations, security agencies, the media, NGOs, finance, as well as providing an excellent foundation for those students who wish to progress to a PhD programme.
