Study type Taught


In this thought-provoking course, you’ll address and debate key issues associated with international security in a period of rapid change.

The MA in International Security and Cooperation introduces students to a range of security challenges as well as to the dynamics of cooperation in a globalised world. Delivered by our experienced team of academic experts, this course aims to equip students with the necessary analytical and methodological tools to address a variety of empirical, normative and theoretical questions on the nature of international security and the means of cooperation.

In this course, students will explore the changing logic of security in international relations since the end of the Cold War and engage with mainstream theoretical approaches of the discipline and newer conceptions of security, such as securitisation theory and human security. You will examine ‘traditional’ security issues such as war and conflict, in addition to a suite of ‘non-traditional’ and transnational issues such as terrorism, military intervention and human rights, and energy security.

Students will also explore how interaction between international actors such as institutions and regimes produce cooperation and security governance across a range of diverse geographical areas. The course pays particularly close attention to patterns of national security cultures and collective security management.

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: MA International Security and Cooperatio
