The new MA in International Relations and Security Studies explores themes of peace and conflict studies, including:

  • War, violence, and security-building between and within states and regions
  • Tackling WMD, conventional arms proliferation, political violence, and terrorism
  • Development and operation of international and regional institutions
  • Past and present transnational challenges in international and regional diplomacy
  • Contemporary global challenges such as environmental degradation, trafficking/crime, and migration

You will develop an advanced academic and policy-relevant understanding of international relations and security, along with analytical skills that are in high demand within institutional politics, NGOs, and lobbying organizations,

You will have the opportunity to take specialist pathways, including specialising in selected regions (Europe, Africa, MENA, Asia, or Latin America and the Caribbean), with opportunities for selected study visits, or take thematic specialisms including international governance, modern diplomacy, security studies, or political violence and terrorism.

The program is delivered by the Division of Peace Studies and International Development, which maintains an international reputation as a center for excellence in research, teaching, training, and policy engagement (in particular in the fields of disarmament and arms control). This means your teaching will not only be research-informed but also delivered by staff well-positioned to facilitate policy and practitioner engagement.
