The MA Conflict, Security and Development builds on Exeter’s strengths in international relations and security and is particularly relevant to students hoping to work for NGOs, aid organisations and international agencies such as the United Nations. Our high quality academic training is balanced with valuable hands-on experience, giving you a fully-rounded degree which truly enhances your CV.
The programme aims to give you first-hand insight into the challenges faced by organisations involved in development and policy making when responding to humanitarian crises caused by civil war and international conflict. By gaining an insider's view of the challenges faced by organisations involved in activities such as relief, reconstruction or policy making, you'll be better equipped to interrogate the myths that surround conflict, security and development and improve your understanding of their relationship within a political context.
