Master of Social Sciences in International Security and Law

International conflicts have changed fundamentally over the past two decades. To understand them and to manage them requires new skills, which is why we offer this new Master programme.

Today’s conflicts are multiple, complex, and volatile. They may last for more than a decade. Signs of progress are often deceptive, and outsiders involved in managing the conflict can experience war, development, and peace enforcement all in one day. It is what the military calls a three block war. To grasp it, and to help organisations prepare for it, experts must look beyond specialisations and be trained to understand and work with complex and conflict ridden environments.

This Master of Social Sciences in International Security and Law will train this kind of expert. It will be experts who look to the international domain, who want to work with international issues, and who will want to help solve conflicts. The programme will provide the experts with the skills to integrate a conflict’s political, juridical, and ethical dimensions in a comprehensive assessment that identifies the drivers of the conflict and what international organisations can do about them.

The programme is a two-year full-time study programme amounting to a total of 120 ECTS. There are 6 core courses, 3 electives, and a thesis. All courses, core courses and electives, each represent 10 ECTS. The thesis represents 30 ECTS.

Core courses are offered jointly by the Department of Political Science and the Department of Law and they make up the first two semesters of the Master’s four semesters in total. The core courses of the first semester are open to students of this programme only.

All courses of the second and third semester will be oriented towards practical analytical skills, combining background knowledge of the big debates in terms of theory and world developments with the ability to bring this knowledge to bear in the assessment of specific conflicts. It will be a trademark of the programme to have students connect big ideas and concrete events.
