International Security Studies (M.A.)


FSH Nursing RecruitmentTrinity’s international security studies program provides students with a strong foundation to confront the ever-changing, fast-paced and challenging international security environment. With an emphasis on traditional and emerging transnational security threats, we prepare students for analytical, operational and leadership careers in international security in the public and private sectors.

Our program ensures students’ competence in the threats (state and non-state) that cause instability and conflict within the international security environment. It also develops students’ intellectual understanding of the strategies and methods of prevention, both those involving diplomacy and those involving force.
