Summary

Explore the multi-faceted subject of international security and gain fresh and leading perspectives.

International security has evolved enormously in the last 15 years, with terrorism, human and drug trafficking and territorial and sovereignty disputes adding an extra layer of complexity to the traditional security challenges of states.

This course offers a focus on security issues, looking at politics and policy-making in the contemporary international arena, and the role of global actors within it.

You'll gain a deep insight into the diverse dimensions of international security, unpacking the practices and challenges of different governments and organisations and exploring how these relate to research and policy-making.

Studying this at Bath provides an opportunity to work with researchers who are part of the debate on both traditional and non-traditional security issues.

With expertise across a wide spectrum of topics - including cyberspace politics, borders in South East Asia, the American drone strikes in Pakistan, biological and chemical weapons, rising powers and global governance - you'll gain new perspectives on this complex subject area.

You'll leave with:

  • an in-depth understanding of the new international security environment of the post Cold War era

  • detailed knowledge of the theories and methods underpinning international security

  • the ability to analyse current security challenges and practices and the impact of those on research and policy-making

  • a strong foundation for an international career in administration, diplomacy, research and policy-making

This course is for those with a degree in an appropriate subject, such as public policy, government, international affairs, international relations, history or sociology. It's also suitable for professionals who want to specialise in security issues, whether you're working in an NGO, government or the private sector, or other relevant fields such as commerce, industry and teaching.
