MSc Women Peace and Security


Course Description

About the MSc programme

This unique, multi-disciplinary programme is concerned with the ways in which women and gender are understood in relation to, and affected by, regional, national and global peace and security processes in conflict and post-conflict settings.

Located in the Centre for Women Peace and Security and administered through the LSE Gender Institute, students will fully participate in its cross-sectoral community of scholars, activists and practitioners from around the world. In addition to regular lectures, students will benefit from guest practitioner seminars, workshops and classes led by experts in the field - Visiting Fellows and Professors, Activists in Residence and other members of the Centre, as well as by faculty from other departments at LSE. The programme will make use of empirical material and case studies that are national and transnational in scope, and will incorporate interdisciplinary texts and perspectives from theory, policy, and practice.

This programme will be suitable for mid-career professionals working in conflict and post-conflict settings; in humanitarian assistance; UN field offices; and peace governance roles. It will also be suitable for early-career students who would like to work in the field, in any number of roles.

Graduate destinations

Gender Institute students go on to work in varied career paths: research and consultancy for government and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in developed and less developed countries, international organisations, humanitarian and charity work, personnel work, civil and diplomatic services, representative politics, advocacy, the legal profession, academia, media and communication and in education.
