MA International Security Studies is designed to enhance research skills in the area of security studies

Giving you an excellent grounding in preparation for a PhD, or for a research career in think tanks, government departments, or non-governmental organisations, the MA is suitable for students with an interest in international relations and contemporary issues of international security. This programme allows you the freedom to tailor the course to suit your particular research interests, as you produce a specialist research dissertation in consultation with an expert supervisor.

We provide lots of opportunities for you to develop transferable skills for use in a variety of careers. Our graduates move on to a wide range of roles, including UK ambassadors, military officers, members of the SAS or intelligence analysts, bankers, political analysts, university lecturers, staff college lecturers, journalists, officials in international organisations or police officers.

Others have gone into industry, teaching, local government administration, charitable foundations or Parliament.
