PURPOSEThis programme is for graduates and professionals with an interest in understanding the nature and role of intelligence. The MA programme is designed to have broad ranging appeal to those interested in pursuing graduate studies in the areas of intelligence and security studies. Specifically those who may find this programme to be of interest will include: graduates in politics, history, international relations and strategic studies; those with practical experience in the intelligence community who may wish to reflect on the wider issues and implications of their experience; professionals in the areas of defence, diplomacy and foreign affairs.

DESCRIPTIONIssues of intelligence have assumed increasing prominence in world affairs as analysts and policy makers attempt to assess the nature of new threats in the international system. This programme will enable students to examine the nature, processes, roles and case studies of intelligence and their interaction with developments in international security.

In examining the trends that continue to shape intelligence and geo-strategic developments in the 21st Century this programme offers a unique multidisciplinary approach based on the strengths of the department. We aim to provide a framework in which to understand the nature and role of intelligence in its relationship to wider issues in war and international security; an understanding of the processes, practices and institutions that have characterised intelligence in the modern era; an understanding of the problems connected with intelligence collection, assessment and ability to predict events in world affairs; and an appreciation of the particular ethical concerns generated by intelligence related phenomena.
