International Security

The course provides you with a rigorous understanding of contemporary security and emerging security challenges. You learn how to produce theoretically and empirically informed analysis of a range of issues, including imperial war, civil wars, violence against civilians, military intervention, terrorism and new technologies of war. You also examine a variety of contemporary issues, from intelligence to resilience and from rising powers to WMDs and biosecurity. The course includes an optional fieldtrip to Brussels, Belgium. The School of Global Studies offers you support in finding a research placement, allowing you to gain experience in an area of work relating to your subject of study and to acquire practical skills in preparation for a professional career. Research placements run over a 12-week period in the summer term and vacation. If you take a research placement, you have the opportunity to write a dissertation based on your experience.
