Course content

Our Terrorism, Security and Society MA is an interdisciplinary programme that draws on history, political science, international relations, sociology, social psychology and risk studies to understand international security threats. Because of the complex nature of terrorism, we believe it is valuable to study it from a variety of perspectives. On this programme, you will focus on security and counterterrorism issues and on a critical social science approach, and analyse society’s response and adaptation to the phenomenon.
