Old Aberdeen Campus
With the combined strength of two schools, this programme explores the use of force by international and transnational actors to achieve political and security objectives. It allows a focused appreciation of the legal considerations that frame many contemporary conflicts. Students will have the opportunity to develop critical thinking and analytic skills through studying courses such as International Law: A Time of Challenges and International Humanitarian Law.
This programme was designed with the assistance of external contacts within the fields of International Law and Strategic Studies. With the combined input from several expert lawyers, you will gain unique insights into both subjects and will advance your understanding of their relationship. Alongside the expert knowledge of our internal staff at the University, the programme aligns with the competencies required for today’s international job market.
