Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.

This is the second year of your taught Masters programme.

Assessment for Year 2

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.
