Postgraduate Diploma in International Security Studies

The International Security Studies courses cover a broad spectrum of traditional and non-traditional security issues examined from a regional and global context.
Following the Australian government's expanded definition of national security to encompass an all-hazards approach, the field of security issues is no longer limited to traditional security threats such as, military threats, terrorism, law enforcement and critical infrastructure protection, it also includes non-traditional security threats such as pandemics, natural disasters, humanitarian intervention, economic security and environmental security. This postgraduate program examines the theoretical and conceptual frameworks that tend to explain the security landscape relative to geopolitical security interest.
