Course summary

This course addresses the nature of threats to security, how states seek to manage and neutralise those threats, and how security is situated within the wider practice and theory of international politics. You will study theories of international politics alongside developments in security, and international institutions such as NATO, across the 20th century and up to the present day.The range of optional modules is wider than at other universities, covering security, intelligence studies, terrorism studies, military and international history, and international politics. You can choose to study modules from the University-Wide Language Programme (UWLP) as part of this course, and will have the opportunity to spend up to one year in a university outside of the UK on a study abroad exchange placement, as well as the opportunity to undertake a work placement. There is an emphasis on developing key skills for employability, including through access to the WORDSCOPE programme and the Salford Advantage scheme.With recent developments in Crimea, the al-Qaeda led attacks of 11 September 2001, and the controversy surrounding Edward Snowden’s leak of classified intelligence material, there has never been a more important time to study International Politics and Security at the University of Salford.
