About

The MA in International Security and Conflict Studies at Dublin City University aims to provide you with the tools to make your own analysis in our increasingly interconnected world. 

Overview

Conflict takes many forms – not just direct violence – and we are all affected by it. Understanding the processes and driving forces at work is essential in our ever-changing world. Why do people feel threatened? How do some groups manage to overcome their differences? What is the effect of peacekeeping, online radicalisation, or international treaties?

Why Do This Programme?

  • Gain an in-depth knowledge of the political, social, economic, historical, and cultural contexts of the international security system and its institutions, including international security organisations and the law of armed conflict.

  • Understand specific aspects of international security in the contemporary world, including peacekeeping and peace-making interventions, terrorism, failed states and human security.

  • Open doors to further postgraduate studies in Conflict Studies, International Relations, Peace Studies, Politics/Political Science, Security Studies, Strategic Studies and Terrorism Studies.

  • Learn through interactive, hands-on teaching methods in small group settings, and get a head start on your career through relationships with colleagues from varied backgrounds and specialisms.
