This course provides a thorough grounding in international security studies, focusing on developments since the end of the cold war. As the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington demonstrated with shocking clarity, international security remains a vital issue on the global agenda. The search for a stable and just international order has proven elusive, with war and armed conflict continuing in many parts of the world.
At least a 2.1 Honours degree or its equivalent, in politics, history, international relations or other related subjects.
Modules include: International security (theories and concepts); issues and themes in international security; dissertation; plus options from: Europe after the Cold War; war and peace in the Middle East; Germany and Europe; crisis diplomacy; revolution in eastern Europe; international society and its critics; US national decision-making process.
The core modules are examined by mixture of assessed essay and unseen examination; the optional modules are examined by a class presentation and an assessed essay; master's students who have passed all forms of assessment are able to proceed to write a supervised dissertation of between 12,000-15,000 words in length.
