Overview

Specifically, the Development and Security programme from University of Bristol  builds on the unique combination of expertise and experience in the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies to:

  • examine the nature of violent conflict in the world today and the international community's response to it;
  • locate this analysis in a comprehensive theoretical understanding of wider development and security studies, debates and controversies, particularly in relation to evolving patterns of global governance;
  • explore these issues and dilemmas through contemporary, empirical case studies.

Careers

Bristol graduates are in high demand and have an excellent record of employment following graduation. Students of the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies' MSc programmes go on to pursue varied and interesting careers.

Many sectors - such as the civil service, NGOs and charities - require an MSc and some volunteer/internship experience. Graduates from our programmes have gone on to work for Refugee UK, Shelter, Barnardos, Amnesty International, government departments and the European Parliament, among others.
