About

During the International Relations and Security Studies programme at the University of Bradford, you will develop an advanced academic and policy relevant understanding of international relations and security, along with analytical skills that are in high demand within institutional politics, NGO and lobbying organisations.

Overview

The new International Relations and Security Studies programme at the University of Bradford explores themes of peace and conflict studies, including:

  • war, violence and security-building between and within states and regions
  • tackling WMD, conventional arms proliferation, political violence and terrorism
  • development and operation of international and regional institutions
  • past and present transnational challenges in international and regional diplomacy
  • contemporary global challenges such as environmental degradation, trafficking/crime and migration

You will have the opportunity to take specialist pathways, including specialising in selected regions (Europe, Africa, MENA, Asia, or Latin America and the Caribbean), with opportunities for selected study visits, or take  thematic specialisms including international governance, modern diplomacy, security studies, or political violence and terrorism.

The programme is delivered by the Division of Peace Studies and International Development, which maintains an international reputation as a centre for excellence in research, teaching, training and policy engagement (in particular in the fields of disarmament and arms control). This means your teaching will not only be research-informed but also delivered by staff well-positioned to facilitate policy and practitioner engagement.
