Part time Masters in Humanities and Social Sciences in England in United Kingdom. The Master of Design in Social Innovation applies the lens of design thinking to address some of society’s most intractable social, environmental and economic challenges.

In applying a range of approaches to designing and prototyping social ventures and models of organisation, the MDes in Social Innovation will equip you with a practice-based approach to embedding innovation in the area of sustainability, community resilience, corporate social responsibility, venture philanthropy and organisational agility. Working with a cross- disciplinary team of professionals, the course will allow you to learn about radical ideas, evolve these ideas and test them in a ‘lived’ organisational environment.

Part time Masters in Humanities and Social Sciences in England in United Kingdom. This is the first MA programme to provide an insight into the emerging synergy between national security planning and international security challenges. The curriculum provides students with a good grounding in the study of the contending approaches and issues in international security and the challenges of national security planning in the age of terror. Students benefit from studying in a research-active and policy informed learning environment. The two core modules are team taught and deal with issues that range from homeland security, counter terrorism, war crimes, non proliferation and energy security. The course also explores the use of non military tools to combat terrorism and the infringement of civil liberties and problems of social cohesion in national security planning. As new international security challenges such as international terrorism and organised crime directly bear upon national security issues like civil emergency planning, there is an increasing need to understand what the new security challenges are and how the lines between international and national security are now so often interchangeable. Programme structure Full-time students complete the MA in International Security and the Politics of Terror over twelve months. Study is divided between taught modules, which last for one term each, and dissertation work. For full-time students, a total of six modules must be taken over the first two terms.
