The post-Cold War international system has witnessed the rise of multifaceted security challenges.
Traditional great power rivalries have re-emerged as China and Russia have been contesting the existing world order; while non-traditional, human, societal and economic security issues have added considerable complexity to our understanding of security and stability.
In order to face these challenges, governments and international organisations increasingly need analysts who have the knowledge, skills and creativity to understand complex geostrategic issues and engineer solutions.
As a student in the Security and Strategic Studies program at Macquarie University, you’ll learn about the dynamics behind major geopolitical and geostrategic issues, and about multidimensional non-traditional security challenges, and you’ll extend your knowledge of analytical methods to evaluate strategic choices, and the evolution of Australia’s interests and grand strategy.
