About

The postgraduate course in Diplomacy and Security Studies at Liverpool John Moores University is designed to equip students with an industry-specific toolkit of international relations and foreign policy, as applicable to security and counter-terrorism. 

Overview

The role of diplomacy in international security cannot be overstated, and a strong understanding of global governance and international affairs is increasingly vital for security professionals. With new resolutions adopted by United Nations members to provide and share tools used to detect terrorism, the rise of globalisation creates a need for an international diplomatic approach to security.

This unique course allows you to apply diplomatic theory to current issues in global crime and gives you a practical toolkit to approach real world scenarios. Students use an online classroom to learn alongside a global community, giving you first hand experiences from other countries and organisations.
