At no other point in history has our world experienced such a significant set of security challenges. The post-Cold War system has witnessed the rise of multifaceted challenges – traditional power rivalries have re-emerged while non-traditional security issues have disrupted global stability. To face these challenges, governments and organisations need analysts who understand complex geostrategic issues and can engineer solutions. This combined bachelor + master degree will prepare you to meet the needs of this rapidly changing sector. You’ll study risk management, emergency response, national resilience, business continuity planning, law enforcement and the use of military force. You’ll learn about the dynamics behind major geopolitical and geostrategic issues, multidimensional non-traditional security challenges, and the evolution of Australia’s interests and strategy.
