Overview

The MA/MRes in Politics and International Relations - Pathway in Global Security from Keele University provides a high degree of focus, enabling you to engage with specific issues and carry out research into subjects of interest and relevance. You can build a tailored, systematic programme of study, choosing from our diverse collection of four different pathways – in Global Security, Politics, US Politics and International Relations. We also offer an MSc in International Diplomacy.

On this Global Security pathway, you can investigate key developments in international conflict and security, looking how security functions at the international and political level, between nation states, within societies and communities. You may choose to focus on the post-Cold War period, considering how shifting conceptions of security are allied to shifting understandings of the state, society, the economy, and culture.
