About

This International Security and Development (Extended) programme from Swansea University explores coverage of ‘traditional’ security issues such as war and conflict, in addition to ‘non-traditional’ issues such as economic security, environmental security, health and migration.

Overview

You will receive an advanced introduction to the main approaches in the study of security. These approaches cover realism, securitization theory, feminist approaches, critical theory and poststructuralism.

The Extended MA (EMA) is a 240-credit postgraduate qualification that is equivalent to 120 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) and is thus a recognised Masters qualification throughout the European Union. The EMA is a standard UK MA plus an additional 60 credits (30 ECTS) and this additional coursework is undertaken in one semester at a partner institution overseas. The EMA is therefore not only an EU recognised postgraduate qualification it also adds a study abroad experience thus enhancing the qualification’s employability credentials.

Based on our energising Singleton Park campus, in parkland overlooking Swansea Bay, we have the expertise and full range of modern facilities to ensure your learning is right up to the minute.

The Graduate Centre of the College of Arts and Humanities is designed to promote individual and collaborative research activity of international standard.
