Course summary

Why study this course?

This MSc degree will provide you with the analytical understanding and knowledge to lead the agenda for prevention of two of the world's most pressing issues, the politics of violence and radicalisation at the national and global scale.

University experts in politics, sociology, criminology and international relations will critically instruct you on current policies and social practices related to national and global scenarios of violence and radicalisation.

More about this course

This course looks in-depth at the concepts and politics surrounding terrorism, political violence and security worldwide. It provides an understanding of the forces of global politics and develops the skills needed to engage in academic and professional discussions that are shaping the international agenda on violence and radicalisation. With a particular focus on human rights and international conflict, the course strikes a balance between the theoretical and practical elements of the study of international relations.

You'll be able to develop a specialism in a field that interests you, including politics and international relations, women's studies, conflict resolution and contemporary issues in sociology and criminology.

We invite visiting professors and experts in criminology and international relations to the University to share their expertise. These guest visits complement the knowledge of our academics, who are actively engaged in research in fields including street crime, gangs and police body cameras. Their expertise will support you when undertaking your dissertation.

Research on political violence and radicalisation is a growing concern for academia. The crisis of violence, corruption, terrorism and security in regions such as Latin America, Africa and the Far East guarantee the need of specialists and professionals in political violence and radicalisation worldwide. On graduation you'll be at the cutting-edge of these issues globally, regionally and nationally.

Assessment

You'll be assessed through coursework and a dissertation of between 12,000 and 15,000 words. The dissertation forms a key element of your master's degree and allows you to gain in-depth knowledge of your chosen topic.

After the course

As a graduate in Political Violence and Radicalisation MSc you'll be prepared for a future career in the national diplomatic services, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), international political support organisations, journalism, teaching, higher education, the armed forces or public sector management.

You'll also be able to continue to study at PhD level and gain the knowledge, understanding and skills applicable to teaching and research in the field.

If you're already engaged in a related occupation, you'll benefit from academic contextualisation with which to understand and evaluate the complexity of varied agencies, departments and policies related to the politics of violence and radicalisation.
