Course Summary

Develop in-depth knowledge and skills of research methods. Prepare yourself for an academic or professional career with a focus on security and human rights.

The course aims to prepare you for a career as a professional researcher in either an academic or non-academic environment by developing your core research skills. We'll encourage you to review and critically evaluate approaches to research and their application, and to identify and investigate your own original research questions.

You'll become familiar with the key concepts and theories that underpin an interdisciplinary understanding of security, conflict and human rights, and will be able to use your knowledge to inform research and analysis in these areas.

You will also learn about contemporary problems and how they emerge at sub-national, national and supra-national levels, and how these levels are linked.

By the end of the course you should be able to respond to the demands of carrying out research in international contexts and among sensitive or vulnerable stakeholders caught up in specific conflict situations.

South West Doctoral Training Partnership

This MRes is recognised by the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC), specifically, as part of the larger South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP). It can be taken as a course in its own right, or if you hold an SWDTP studentship you can take the 1+3 (MRes + PhD) pathway.

If you wish to be considered for a 1+3 SWDTP studentship, then you must apply for your preferred PhD route and not the stand alone MRes. You should follow our how to apply and funding guidelines.

For those holding a 1+3 SWDTP studentship, progression from the MRes to the MPhil or PhD stage is dependent on an acceptable level of achievement.

Modules
