A new distance learning course in Security Studies equips you for a world of career opportunities with flexible part-time study options from Postgraduate Certificate to Master of Science.

Taught and awarded by London Metropolitan University, the program starts on November 25, 2013. Enrolment for the PGCert (11 months), PGDip (21 months) and MSc (26 months) closes on November 11.

The course has been developed by a renowned team at the University in conjunction with the John Grieve Center for Policing and Community Safety. It is delivered in partnership with IBC Academy, an experienced provider of distance learning education. IBC Academy has many years’ experience offering education and development courses for personnel in a wide range of sectors looking to boost their career trajectory.

“The program examines key themes and debates shaping concepts of security”, said Dr. Nick Ridley, Program Leader and Senior Lecturer in Policing and Security at the University. “It addresses critical areas of contemporary concern, covering issues stretching from foreign policy through the role of radicalization in international politics to the evolving dangers of financial and cyber crime.”

“The Security Studies program will not only equip you to analyze these types of problems but will also help you to place them in the context of broader military, strategic and political considerations. You will gain a solid academic grounding in the fields of criminology, terrorism and intelligence which will equip you with the critical thinking skills needed to make sense of the ever-changing global security agenda. These skills will enable you to engage with institutions and individuals central to this area.”

The course is of benefit to anyone wishing to work for a public, private or international organization. Typical career destinations might include:

     senior positions in the police and armed forces
     intelligence agencies
     the private security sector
     criminal justice
     academic positions
     government research posts
     local and public services
     journalism
     positions within institutions such as the European Union or the United Nations

“The vocational nature of the postgraduate program is further enhanced by the dissertation, which allows you to engage in a substantial piece of research and to apply your knowledge and skills in an area of particular interest to you and your career aspirations”, adds Dr Ridley. Part-time study by distance learning is particularly well-suited to busy professionals looking to equip themselves for new career opportunities in the global environment. “The postgraduate Security Studies program requires no physical attendance at induction sessions or lectures at the university itself,” explains Stephen Wrench, Curriculum Manager at IBC Academy. “We offer an academically rigorous qualification using a sophisticated Learning Management System to involve and support students in an immersive study program, wherever they are in the world, and whatever their current commitments. This means that you can organize your learning and gain a postgraduate award without having to take any time away from the demands of your work and home life.”

Join a growing number of graduates from around the world who are enrolling to secure new horizons for their future careers.
