Summary

Global pandemics, the effects of climate change, cyber-attacks, the rise of the far right, international terrorism and the disintegration of our democratic systems; these are just some of the threats that this generation will have to meet in the 21st century. How can we respond to these threats and security issues as individuals, organisations and societies?

Studying the full-time MA in International Relations, Conflict and Security at Northumbria University, Amsterdam Campus will introduce you to the key concepts and theories necessary to understand the features of contemporary international relations, conflict studies and security issues.

You will be given the opportunity to explore responses to such challenges within a dynamic framework of politics, law and ethics . You will learn to consider what is possible. In order to discuss the questions of what can be done, versus what ought to be done.

We will give focus to the relationship between international and national interests. The programme will allow you to understand conflict and security as a policy challenge. You will be able to recognise the increasing degree of interdependence between states, international organisations and non-state actors in governing this area of international relations.

You will also analyse the ways in which security, development and humanitarian agents adapt to instability.

This programme gives you the opportunity to study regionally differentiated responses to international conflict, across different countries and nations.

This master's program is open to students from a wide range of undergraduate disciplines. The course will prepare you for a career in international relations. However you will also have the skills and knowledge appropriate to those looking for careers in international organisations, government, media or academia.
