Programme specification:

MSc Security, Conflict and Justice offers an exciting opportunity to understand contemporary issues of security, conflict and justice from the perspectives of criminology, international relations, law, politics and sociology.

Hosted by the School of Law, this interdisciplinary programme is run in conjunction with the School of Politics and International Studies.

The interdisciplinary framework and approach offers a comprehensive programme through which international and local conflicts over security, conflict and justice are analysed, transnational security concerns and crimes are studied, and research methodologies in international and comparative criminal justice are examined.

The broad range of modules facilitates critical evaluation of some of the most pressing contemporary issues of security, conflict and justice from an interdisciplinary perspective, as well as offering the opportunity to specialise in topics that relate to future career choices or academic interests.

The course adopts a seminar-based format, offering the opportunity to consider both theoretical and empirical aspects of security, conflict and justice, and to apply knowledge to case study examples.
