Few subjects could claim to be quite as relevant as International Security, and our MA will provide you with a thorough and in-depth understanding of the key issues and debates within it. You’ll cover war, peace, conflict and terrorism, as well as the ‘new security challenges’, such as poverty, famine and environmental change. You’ll acquire essential grounding in international relations theory. You’ll study security within the international system, from the Cold War to the present day and engage in simulations, learning about the theoretical and practical challenges posed by the strategic relations between the different international stakeholders. You’ll graduate ready for a career in international security, or to pursue doctoral research. And you’ll do all this under the guidance of leading authorities in the field. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) rated 70% of UEA's research in Politics and International Studies as world leading or internationally excellent.
