International Security and Development, MA
The MA in International Security and Development introduces you to the major issues and critical debates within a profoundly serious field.
Security, violence and conflict are now central to international politics and development policy discourse. Understanding the modern world demands a full appreciation of conflict and violence.
In this course you explore coverage of ‘traditional’ security issues such as war and conflict, in addition to ‘non-traditional’ issues such as economic security, environmental security, health and migration.
Capitalising on departmental expertise in security, you will receive an advanced introduction to the main approaches in the study of security.
These approaches cover realism, securitization theory, feminist approaches, critical theory and poststructuralism.
Singleton Park Campus
Travelling west on the M4 leave the motorway at junction 42 and follow signs for Swansea on the A483 (Fabian Way). On crossing the River Tawe the A483 becomes the A4067. Continue west along this road, passing Sainsbury’s Superstore on the left-hand side of the road. After approximately 1.5 miles there is a footbridge over the road. The University’s main entrance lies just before the footbridge and is controlled by traffic lights. As you approach the lights, keep to the right-hand lane and prepare to turn right into the University. There is a Visitors’ Car Park immediately right of the main entrance. There are large Park-and-Ride sites at Port Tennant and on the A483 east of Swansea, at Landore, on the A4067 north of the city. All sites are open from 7.00 am until 7.00 pm, Monday to Saturday.
