Programme Description

The MA Programme in International Security provides in-depth knowledge and understanding of the international security environment of the 21st century.

Students focus on topics including strategy, foreign policy, intelligence, homeland security, military analysis, regional security and conflict resolution. The curriculum combines relevant coursework with a mandatory internship, providing students with the knowledge and skills demanded by the market for the international security professional, broadly defined. Graduates are exceptionally well prepared to serve as administrators, executives, diplomats, military and civil servants, policy analysts, and consultants.
