Durham Global Security Institute Masters Degrees
Dr Stefanie Kappler explains the similarities and differences of the two DGSi Masters Programmes, the opportunities they present and the career options available upon graduation. For more information see www.durham.ac.uk/dgsi/msc
All courses are designed to maximise inter-participant interaction. The MScs explore the interface between defence, development and diplomacy, in conflict prevention intervention and post-conflict reconstruction and stabilisation. Straddling war and peace studies, and drawing in (international) politics, law, geography and anthropology, among others, the programmes enable students to study the latest theories, engage with world-class academics and practitioners and gain practical skills through role playing.
Cross-cutting themes include the changing relationship between state, society and international system; the role of law, ethics, culture and communication; the interplay between local and transnational; and the tension between national and human security. The MScs are targeted at professionals from governmental, inter-governmental and non-governmental organisations, graduates and those wishing to pursue further research.
