Course summary

Overview

Specialise in an important aspect of world politics with our MA in International Security.

During the course, you will cover both:

the traditional focus on the security of states and
more contemporary debates centred on ‘human security’ in a variety of contexts.

You will be encouraged to think beyond ‘bullets and bombs’. And to consider a range of practices that contribute to our understandings of security and insecurity.

As a postgraduate programme, the integration between research and teaching is a crucial part of the quality of the experience. So the course also provides a sound grounding in relevant research methods.

You will benefit from links with International NGOs, many of which are based in Oxford. These include Oxfam and Rights and Accountability in Development (RAID).

On graduating you will be well-suited to a variety of careers in:

government
non-governmental organisations
charity organisations
civil service
international organisations
law
trade unions.

After you graduate

Career prospects

The programme will appeal to students who have a broad interest in international affairs, and to those whose future work is likely to involve the public sphere in an international and global context. It is relevant to careers in media and general management, as well as in the civil service, intergovernmental organisations and non-governmental organisations. It will also appeal to those wanting to progress to a research degree.

Students can also exit with Pgdip/PgCert awards.
