MSc Geopolitics & Security















Our exciting and intensive one-year MSc programme, jointly taught by the Departments of Geography and Politics and International Relations, officially launched in September 2012. The programme brings the best of geopolitical and geographically sensitive research together with  approaches from critical security studies. Our ethos is interdisciplinary, collaborative and supportively critical. Our students benefit from small group seminar and tutorial style teaching, working directly with senior researchers. Part of our programme also now functions as a research training component of Royal Holloway's Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber-Security.  

Innovative, up to date, and grounded in real-life skills and experiences, this programme is designed for both ambitious young graduates and experienced professionals working in commercial or political organisations such as banking, energy, media, think tanks and government, where risk management is critical to strategic policy development. The programme is also an ideal research training route towards a PhD and a career in academia.
