About International Conflict and Security at University of Kent Brussels School of International Studies

Understanding the dynamic and complex factors of modern conflict and fashioning effective and legitimate responses to the main contemporary security issues is a major challenge for the international community. The MA in International Conflict and Security at the Brussels School of International Studies is carefully designed to provide the necessary knowledge, as well as analytical and practical skills to meet this challenge. The MA programme is structured to introduce students to the key concepts and theories necessary to understand contemporary international conflicts and security issues.

The aims of the MA in International Conflict and Security are to:

  • Provide a programme that will attract and meet the needs of both those seeking to prepare for careers in fields concerned with international conflicts and those with a general intellectual interest in contemporary security issues.
  • Provide students with a research-active teaching environment which gives them a good grounding in the study of international conflict and war, cooperation, security and peace.
  • Examine how state, non-state and supra-national actors behave and interact in conflict situations.
  • Ensure that students acquire a solid knowledge of theories of the causes and dynamics of different kinds of contemporary conflict and security threats and the means to manage them.
  • Ensure that students who specialise in regional conflicts acquire an advanced understanding of the historical, cultural, social and institutional context of the area to be studied.
  • Prepare students for various careers in jobs related to international conflict analysis and security issues as well as for career changes in the spirit of lifelong learning.
  • Develop students' general research skills and personal skills (transferable skills), in particular through a substantial dissertation.

Programme Structure:

The MA in International Conflict and Security is offered in both the Standard (90 ECTS credits) and the Extended version (120 ECTS credits) and in each case students may take the programme with or without a secondary specialisation.
