International Security Studies MA
1-2 years, full- or part-time
Whether they're political, economic, religious or environmental, international security issues can stem from all corners of society. You’ll learn what these key issues are, but more importantly, how to tackle them head-on.
Teaching and learning
You will be taught by seminars. Throughout the programme, you will have access to a comprehensively resourced library and an established student support system. Each module lasts for one semester (11 weeks) and normally involves two hours of teaching per week. If you are studying full-time, you will complete four modules by the end of the second semester and, if you are progressing to the MA, you will submit your dissertation by the end of September.
You will be assessed through a combination of essays, seminar papers and (if you are completing the MA) your dissertation of 12,000 to 15,000 words.
