Governance of Crisis (MSc)

Programme structure

This one-year, English-taught Master's programme offers insights on general developments as well as the specific challenges in the field of the governance of crisis and security, with in-depth knowledge of sub-fields of crisis and security management.

Programme outline

The CSM programme consists of three common courses of 5 ECTS each. Next, you choose a specialisation that consists of four coherent courses of 10 ECTS each. Further, one elective of 5 ECTS completes the CSM curriculum. Students graduate on account of a portfolio and reflection paper, showing how exactly they met the learning outcomes of the programme.

By selecting one specialisation that suits your interest, you will be able to become a security professional with specialized knowledge and skills combined with a deep understanding of the general field. When applying for the programme, you need to submit your preferred specialisation. During the year, you cannot switch specialisations since these consist of a coherent set of courses aimed towards gaining specific skills and knowledge.

The combination of theory, practical insights and analytical skills will prepare you for work in a vast array of public or private organisations.
