The International Security Studies (MISS) at Charles University respects the multidisciplinary dimension of contemporary security studies that face analytical challenges in traditional as well as non-traditional domains.
Therefore, students will obtain theoretical and methodological training allowing them to address security issues ranging from conventional conflicts and wars to unconventional agendas associated with cyber or space realms.
Graduates of the programme are prepared to pursue careers in security-related posts in government offices and public administration, intelligence agencies, international organizations, NGOs and transnational corporations. Some might also like to pursue a doctorate and an academic career.
Security studies have been a dynamic field. Throughout the Cold War, it was a field closely wedded to war studies and military science, and it concentrated on questions dealing with nuclear weapons, disarmament, and potential confrontations between the superpowers. After the end of the Cold War, security studies underwent a significant transformation, which, along with the ever-widening understanding of the notions of security, began to move beyond the traditional military domains.
