Why this programme
- The University of Glasgow is the leading partner in the consortium of universities that have developed this joint masters programme. Other degree awarding partners include Charles University Prague (Czech Republic), Dublin City University (Ireland) and University of Trento (Italy).
- Specialist master classes and webinars (online seminars) will be provided by practitioners and visiting academics.
- The Security, Intelligence and Strategic Studies programme from University of Glasgow will address a wide range of challenging intellectual questions, as well as the policy and ethical dilemmas that arise when state and non-state actors seek to resolve threats ranging from traditional interstate conflict to diverse contemporary issues such as terrorism, organised crime, and insecurity and vulnerability associated with technological and cyberspace advancements.
- You will also gain experience of the methods and products (linked to intelligence gathering and analysis, diplomacy and strategic communications) used by states, as well as the international political and economic/business communities to advance their security.
Graduates from this programme are prepared to pursue careers in security-related posts in government offices and public administration, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, transnational business corporations and private security and risk analysis companies. Some might also like to pursue a doctorate and an academic career.
