If you are interested in the way our world has been shaped by security issues, conflict, defence policies and how business and other organisations deal with risks in different areas of the world you will be interested in Strategic Studies. Much is discussed about our world and the challenges we face in terms of conflict but where does this conflict come from? How do different countries look at their security issues and what changes their perception of risk? You study historical issues which have lead to conflict in the world and where this conflict comes from. You look at international organisations and their contribution to global order and you look at domestic policies, ideology, historical influences which continue to play out and cultural ideological factors.
You scrutinise real world conflicts and the application of power and force, learning about global security and development. You study global defence policies, domestic and cultural factors involved in strategy. The programme attracts a number of international students due to its international focus and graduates go on to wide ranging careers with a focus on strategic studies such as public sector, government organisations, non government organisations, charities, private business, journalism and policy work.
