The need for understanding the global security landscape has never been more urgent. During the 21st Century, security threats have multiplied exponentially across the world. They range from the traditional, such as strategic competition, nuclear proliferation and global responses to terrorism, to the more contemporary, such as loss of biodiversity, climate change and threats to human security. We’ll also cover global power balances and inequalities between the Global North and the Global South in a post-colonial world. This online Global Security Master’s will equip you with the skills to think about these security issues holistically and allow you to find practical solutions to the dilemmas they pose. Through close engagement with world-class research and teaching conducted by the largest and most diverse collection of security studies scholars on the planet, you’ll expand your conceptual understanding when thinking about security issues and threats. Utilising real-world case studies and scenarios, you’ll build the skills needed to effectively negotiate the often-competing demands of securing people, states and the natural environment in a complex global context.

Key benefits

  • Expand your conceptual toolbox for thinking about contrasting and sometimes conflicting perspectives of security and the challenges of providing security sustainably.
  • Highly relatable to the world today, you’ll discover security in relation to contemporary issues, such as pandemics, immigration and threats to biodiversity, as well as deterrence and new forms of war.
  • Build practical skills using case studies and real-world scenarios, including mock policy papers, podcasts and debates.
  • Discover different ways of thinking about security with our foundational modules.
  • Undertake a range of optional modules to suit your interests and career ambitions.
