About

The International Security and Development programme from Swansea University introduces you to the major issues and critical debates within a profoundly serious field.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Security, violence and conflict are now central to international politics and development policy discourse. Understanding the modern world demands a full appreciation of conflict and violence.

In this International Security and Development programme from Swansea University  you explore 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.

Capitalising on departmental expertise in security, you will receive an advanced introduction to the main approaches in the study of security.

You will study four compulsory 20-credit international relations modules, and a further two optional modules before taking a 60-credit dissertation project of your choosing in the second part of the course.

Career

You will develop a depth of knowledge around international security and development, as well as excellent oral and writing skills.

Graduates of the MA in International Security and Development go on to careers in UN organisations, government and politics, humanitarian organisations, media and PR.
