The MA in International Security and Terrorism emphasises three elements: the theoretical underpinnings of the study of international security and terrorism, the main empirical problems of security and terrorism in the present age and the opportunity to study security and terrorism complexes through optional modules.
Currently, the core modules offered on this course are:
* Security Studies
* Terrorism and Low Intensity Conflict
* Philosophy of Social Sciences
Studying this degree will allow you to draw upon a range of modules that will deepen your understanding and develop your own interests.
You will be able to choose from a number of elective modules covering topics such as:
* Globalisation and its Discontents
* War, Peace and Terror
* Non-governmental Organisations
* Justice Beyond Borders
* Neutrality and Non-alignment
* The Theory and Practice of Diplomacy
* Ethnic Conflict and Conflict Resolution
* International Politics of War Crimes
* Ai Power and Modern Conflict
Please note that modules may change in order to keep abreast of political and academic developments.
During the spring semester, the School organises a four-day study tour to some of the key European security organisations. It includes visits to organisations such as NATO, SHAPE (Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe) and the European Commission in Brussels and to the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague.
Your studies will culminate in the research and writing of a 15,000-word dissertation. You will register your dissertation on a subject of your choice and will be allocated with a Research Supervisor to oversee your progress.
