Centre for Robert Burns Studies

Centre for Robert Burns Studies

The Centre for Robert Burns Studies is the first ever research centre dedicated to the work of Scotland's national poet. Its mission is the development of research, scholarship and teaching in the area of Robert Burns and his cultural period.


The Centre brings together a team of the finest scholars in the field, and the expertise at Glasgow, complemented by the skills of a wide range of outside scholars of international repute, means that the Centre for Robert Burns is a genuinely world-class resource.  If you have a passion for Burns we hope you will become involved and support us.

Global Security

Global Security

Global Security analyses the multi-dimensional nature of contemporary security threats to state and society within an increasingly interdependent world.

Our world faces new and re-emerging security challenges, ranging from war to terrorism, cyber warfare, disease, migration and climate change. At the same time, “frozen” or “forgotten” conflicts, often linked to failed-states and issues of identity and nationalism, have continued to shape the lives of millions of people around the world. All of these issues have resulted in a demand for greater attention and coordinated responses from the international community. Global Security examines threats, strategic actions and policy developments. The MSc in Global Security took in its first students in September 2011.

One of its most exciting innovations will be practitioner master classes. The master classes will bring distinguished and high-ranking representatives of government, NGOs and private industry to Glasgow.
