Course summary

Course description

The MA in Security and International Law course offers the benefits of a specialist master's without the requirement of an undergraduate law degree.

You will gain advanced knowledge in the main areas of international security and the UN system, and the tools necessary to understand the issues surrounding armed conflicts, terrorism, modern warfare, and the security of international transactions and intellectual property.

Aims

The MA in Security and International Law course is designed for those who seek to acquire a recognised expertise in the main areas of security and international law and become generalist in international security and the UN system.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will be all-rounders and have knowledge and understanding of the rules, systems, techniques, practices, dynamics and discourses by virtue of which international security discourse develops.

The course gives you the necessary research skills to autonomously continue to expand, sharpen and update their knowledge of international organisation and the UN system after the completion of the course.

Teaching and learning

The course is based on small-group, seminar-style teaching by our research-active teaching staff as well as invited external experts.

This master's degree is offered part time to allow those with a professional occupation to follow the course.

Coursework and assessment

Most course units are assessed by standard methods, either one written exam, or one coursework essay, or a combination of these two methods of assessment.

The assessment method of each individual course unit is listed in the course unit description on the website. You must also submit two research papers for the MA degree (one research paper submitted in April, and one submitted in September).

Career opportunities

This is a specialised master's offering you training for a range of legal careers in government agencies, the armed forces, international organisations, NGOs, law firms and multinational corporations.
