Course summary

Overview

Our new MA in Peace, Resilience and Social Justice is designed for those seeking an advanced understanding of the major contemporary trends shaping our world, such as environmental crisis, widening inequality and social division, resource scarcity, and violent conflict.

The programme critically examines how society is responding to these challenges, from contentious collective action and political resistance through to efforts to design and create more resilient, sustainable communities.

You will explore topics such as:

  • implications of climate change for peace and social justice
  • the role of resource limits and land-grabbing in the promotion of conflict
  • emergence of movements for indigenous rights and food sovereignty
  • crisis of democratic institutions and the rise of political populism
  • increase in contentious collective action – in both the real and virtual realms

The programme is delivered by the Division of Peace Studies and International Development, which maintains an international reputation as a centre for excellence in research, teaching, training and policy engagement. This means your teaching will not only be research-informed but also by staff that are well positioned to facilitate policy and practitioner community engagement.

Learning and assessment

We use a wide range of teaching, learning and assessment methods to enable students to understand and develop skills for engagement and employment with important policy and practitioner communities (International organisations, governments, NGOs, business associations, etc.), and provide opportunities for students to engage with these in detail through simulation exercises and training workshops, as well as facilitated contacts with practitioners.

Career support

The University is committed to helping students develop and enhance employability and this is an integral part of many programmes. Specialist support is available throughout the course from Career and Employability Services including help to find part-time work while studying, placements, vacation work and graduate vacancies.

Career prospects

Our postgraduate politics courses were ranked 2nd in the UK for employability in the 2018 Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES).
