Course summary

This programme recognises the opportunities for educational provision in an area of increasing interest amongst the academic community, namely the links between development, security and conflict. It will make a direct link between academic and practical policy approaches to analysing and recovering from conflicts, with an emphasis on developing countries. Study from anywhere in the world with practitioners in government, civil society and the private sector, as well as with people new to development. This programme provides a framework for exploring academic synergies and for students to undertake genuinely interdisciplinary study. The programme is delivered online, using a web communications tools system (Canvas) and this web environment is where students are expected to take part in online discussions and group activities, guided by a tutor. All required reading is provided (either in hard copy or via our extensive electronic library, or via Internet links). Assessment takes the form of 2 items of assessment per module, plus a 10,000 to 15,000 word dissertation for the MSc. Students will also achieve PgDip in this course.

Students leaving this programme will be academically well-trained but also be in a position to undertake careers in conflict analysis and management in the developing world.
