20 MScs in International Security

A Master of Science (MSc) is an academic degree where students can gain specialized knowledge and skills on mathematical or scientific subjects. The fields of study can either be course based or research based, or sometimes both. Generally, one must earn an undergraduate degree before pursuing a master’s program.

What is an MSc in International Security? Studies within this degree are broken into the categories of leadership, homeland security and crisis management. Throughout a series of classes, you can examine the threats facing governments across the globe, how they have been dealt with in the past, and how to handle them in the future. Course topics include subjects ranging from preventing terrorism to responding to natural disasters. Students will conduct research and participate in simulations that will challenge their knowledge and ability to evaluate threats.

As you study for your master’s degree, you can gain an understanding of issues that transcend borders. You can also obtain practical knowledge as you learn about different security agencies, then discuss ideas for developing policies regarding individuals’ rights and freedoms.

Many of the different programs can be taken online and vary in length. Some classes are available on a full-time or part-time basis, so you can choose whichever works best with your schedule. Check with the individual university for tuition costs and deadlines.

Security has become a challenge for all nations and goes beyond the borders of an individual country, thus creating a plethora of available positions. In a government career, you could work as an intelligence analyst who looks for possible threats or finds ways to prevent terrorism. Private corporations hire people to investigate internal fraud or misconduct. There are also careers with consulting firms that offer security services both locally and abroad.

Getting a master’s degree in international security can be an excellent way to get started in a new career in criminal justice or to increase your understanding of global threats.
