Developed by the Department of Criminology at the University of Leicester in the UK, this innovative and exciting app provides students enrolled on the MSc in Security, Conflict and International Development by distance learning with access to a wide range of essential study materials. Through a mixture of text-based, video and audio resources, the app enables students to effectively continue their studies while on the move and away from the Internet.
The MSc in Security, Conflict and International Development by distance learning is a new postgraduate degree programme that focuses on how to meet the strategic security and justice challenges of countries emerging from conflict. Designed specifically for those working – or hoping to work – in international development, the programme seeks to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of conflict prevention and recovery with a particular emphasis upon: responding to the challenges of countries emerging from conflict; security sector reform; how to develop the rule of law; the importance of human rights in delivering justice and security; and broader issues relating to international security and the risks posed by countries emerging from, and vulnerable to, conflict.
The course is delivered fully online and enrolled students receive an iPad as part of their course fees together with a range of textbooks (both hard copy and E-books) delivered directly to their door, enabling them to study effectively at a distance.
