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.
