Introduction

The MS.c. in Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) degree program provides students with a flexible, relevant and current curriculum that includes opportunities for students to demonstrate a depth and breadth of knowledge in safety, health, and environment. The emergence of voluntary standards and codes of conduct, including international standards, coupled with the need to manage costs and limited resources has resulted in a trend to move beyond regulatory compliance. Now, companies work toward sustainability through the use of integrated environmental, health and safety management systems, which are woven into key business processes. Although they are distinct disciplines, environmental management, occupational health, and workplace safety share many technical, regulatory, and organizational characteristics. Learn to effectively manage complex environmental health and safety issues and address risk and regulation in this concentration geared toward aspiring health and safety managers, officers, or directors. The MS degree in environmental, health and safety management provides students with a solid foundation in the managerial aspects of developing and implementing environmental, health and safety management systems that can move organizations toward a more sustainable and socially responsible future.

Why this course?

Internationally and domestically, security, broadly defined, is among the most pressing concerns facing states.

Adding to the complexity is the increasingly broad definition of 'security' as new challenges emerge – for example in relation to climate change – while 'traditional' ones – such as terrorism – are reconstructed, along with the heightened interdependencies between states and within their critical infrastructures.

This MSc/LLM in International Relations, Security & Law introduces and familiarises students with contemporary issues relating to the course topics, examining them through legal and political viewpoints.

The interdisciplinary approach of the course sets it apart from other MSc courses on international security and LLM courses on domestic and international security law as does its broad conception of ‘security’, which encompasses both ‘traditional’ concerns and more novel threats.... [-]
