The Master’s Degree in Law & Security provides in-depth knowledge of issues related to Security, drawing from different fields. It is based on an interdisciplinary and transversal approach, due to the need to address the problems of (in)security, which require a global response.

The importance of this master’s degree lies in acknowledging the growing threats to the security of States and citizens, such as terrorism, organized crime, the fragility of certain States, and cyberattacks, among many others – all of which pose a series of challenges to the legality and legitimacy of the action of public powers. Today, more than ever, Security is intrinsically connected to democracy, citizenship, globalization, and development, therefore being a crucial issue for the International Community of States and Citizens.

For the academic year 2022/23 we present a revised edition of the Master’s Degree in Law & Security. We have invested heavily in internationalization and reinforced the theoretical and practical components. We have thus intensified the political, geostrategic, military, economic, and legal areas of Security. Consequently, we can guarantee the appropriate training for our students to adequately respond to the professional and academic challenges of an increasingly complex and competitive world.
