Erasmus Mundus International Master in Security, Intelligence and Strategic Studies (IMSISS)

Erasmus Mundus International Master in Security, Intelligence and Strategic Studies (IMSISS)

IMSISS is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) awarded by a consortium of European universities: University of Glasgow, United Kingdom; Dublin City University, Ireland; Charles University, Czechia and the University of Trento, Italy, working in conjunction with wide network of associate partners, including the University of Cádiz, Spain and OTH Regensburg, Germany). It is a unique interdisciplinary programme offering students a cutting edge training in several relevant security areas.

Students on this degree programme will examine a broad range of contemporary security challenges, such as terrorism, civil war and conflict, mass migration, energy supply security, cyber security and new technologies, and transnational and serious organised crime. Students will also explore the intelligence and strategic approaches used by governmental and non-governmental actors to combat these threats. The degree adopts a unique approach to the study of security by combining theoretical, applied and empirical knowledge and skill sets. Students will have the opportunity to meet with and work alongside a range of academics and researchers from international partner universities and think tanks from around the world, as well as practitioner experts from governmental and industry security and defence sectors. You can learn more about the programme in this leaflet.
