Course content

This programme is ideal for students wishing to develop a research career in terrorism and counter-terrorism studies, or who are working in, or wish to work in, the security or policy sectors.

This programme is aimed at students who wish to get an interdisciplinary understanding of individual and organisational involvement in terrorism, coupled with an understanding of national and international approaches to counter-terrorism and countering violent extremism (CVE).

Alongside the formal lectures and seminars, you will hear from guest speakers from the research community, as well as the private and public sector.

The interdisciplinary nature of this programme draws on the interlinks between criminology, law, psychology, international relations, and sociology.
