Summary

Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study at Swansea University.

The MA in International Security and Development introduces you to the major issues and critical debates within a profoundly serious field.

Security, violence and conflict are now central to international politics and development policy discourse. Understanding the modern world demands a full appreciation of conflict and violence.

In this course you explore coverage of ‘traditional’ security issues such as war and conflict, in addition to ‘non-traditional’ issues such as economic security, environmental security, health and migration.

Capitalising on departmental expertise in security, you will receive an advanced introduction to the main approaches in the study of security.

These approaches cover realism, securitization theory, feminist approaches, critical theory and poststructuralism.
