Our MA in Maritime Security is a pioneering postgraduate qualification. It is shaped by current active researchers in the field, informed by real-world events, and led by a current teaching team with a wealth of experience in the policy, practice, and theory that underpins this dynamic and growing field. We provide a supportive and friendly learning environment.
Each year we have a cohort of students from around the world who bring with them an array of personal and professional experiences in maritime security and related fields. The opportunity to meet and learn with professionals in similar roles but working in very different parts of the world is one of the most important and powerful aspects of our program.
The MA in Maritime Security prepares people to enter into or further a career in fields relating to Maritime Security, including shipping, the security sector, counter-terrorism, law, insurance, development, international relations, and diplomacy.
Maritime Security is one of the most dynamic and expanding sectors in the security industry with an impact on development efforts, insurance, international law, and global shipping. It encompasses the headline issue of piracy alongside other security challenges such as trafficking by sea, illegal fishing, and port security.
