The International Studies (Security) course is one of a suite of International Studies programmes at Oxford Brookes University. It offers both the traditional focus on the security of states and more contemporary debates centred on 'human security' in a variety of contexts. The course also aims to provide a sound grounding in research methods in the social sciences.
