This programme is one of five interdisciplinary pathways that are delivered as part of the South West Doctoral Training Partnership.

The MRes Security, Conflict and Human Rights recognises social scientific research on security, conflict and human rights from different disciplines, and how different approaches treat these issues. The programme moves beyond traditional approaches to security studies to complement these with wider perspectives, such as human (in)security, including domestic insecurity and violence, to develop better strategies for resolving conflicts and securing social justice.

We equip researchers with the interdisciplinary skills to impact research, policy and practice to avoid and mitigate security risks.

Programme structure

You will take a combination of mandatory and optional taught units across the Faculty of Social Sciences and Law (including the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies and School for Policy Studies). Each is delivered within a 12-week teaching block and assessed by an essay or equivalent form of written submission. This is followed in the summer term by a dissertation.

Please note that some units will be delivered collaboratively with partner institutions and will require travel.

Visit our programme catalogue for full details of the structure and unit content for our MRes in Security, Conflict and Human Rights.

Careers

The MRes in Security, Conflict and Human Rights offers useful preparation for a number of careers. Foremost, the MRes is the academic basis and preparation for students choosing the 1+3 programme (the first year is the MRes and the +3 the PhD).

The programme emphasises ESRC-accredited research methods training, the ability to plan, research and write a sophisticated dissertation, and the ability to think in broad theoretical and interdisciplinary terms about challenging issues. These provide an ideal introduction to academic research and to working for NGOs.

It would be of interest to anyone pursuing a career path in international security, development and conflict issues, international development departments of government, policy research, consultancy, the civil service or the military.
