School of Security Studies


The School of Security Studies is the largest community of scholars in the world dedicated to the research and teaching of all aspects of security - contemporary and historical, theoretical and empirical. Our research directly informs academic and policy debates in the UK and internationally.

The School is a focal point for all security-related work across the University aiming to foster inter-disciplinary collaborations with our colleagues in the Health Schools, the Business School, Informatics and many others. The research themes that  form the foundation of the School are: Strategic Studies, Military History, Regional Security, Arms Control, Intelligence, Health, Society & Culture.
