Course Summary

This course will provide you with a theoretical and empirical understanding of the major issues in – and challenges posed to – international security. Within our core modules you'll examine contemporary security and gain sound knowledge of the issues that fall within its realm, including new wars, humanitarian interventions, poverty, famine, disease pandemics, transnational crime and terrorism. You’ll get to grips with international relations theory. And you’ll find solutions to the type of challenges you might face in the real world through simulated exercises. You’ll be able to tailor your learning by selecting optional modules, and you’ll complete your degree with your Master’s dissertation, which you’ll research and write independently on a subject of your choosing, with academic supervision. You could also have the chance to take part in trips abroad to locations including Brussels and Geneva, and institutions such as the EU and NATO. Once there, you’ll have the opportunity to speak to officials and military personnel about their work. And you’ll also be able to meet graduates from UEA who are now working in or near Brussels. The programme includes study and discussion with academics, politicians and officials, plus visits to international organizations, non-governmental bodies and think tanks such as the European Institute for Asian studies, ICRC, WHO and UNESCO. As a member of our postgraduate community you’ll be able to attend numerous events and talks during your time here.
