International Security

Course
2019-2020

Description

This course is an undergraduate survey of the theoretical foundations of security studies and contemporary issues in international security. Building on the first-year Introduction to International Relations, the course introduces students to general theories, concepts and debates in the subfield, and applies them to a set of more specific topics in present-day global security. The aim is to enable students to think in a more theoretically rigorous and analytic manner about security issues and understand their relation to the broader field of International Relations.

Course objectives

Objective 1: Enable students to think critically beyond state-centered conceptions of security.
Objective 2: Locate the study of global security within a broader historical and political context.
