Course content

Do you want to work as a civil servant, the armed forces, the legal profession, to teach in a related field or report on national news? Whatever your interest in this complex subject, our Masters degree in terrorism and security will give you the opportunity to explore it in depth.

Sitting at the top of the political agenda across the world, this is a fascinating and highly relevant field of study that offers insight into a wide-ranging cross-section of culture, politics and international relations.

You’ll examine the tactics used by terrorist groups and the measures put in place across America, Europe and the Middle East to counter them, as well as developing your understanding of terrorism in relation to threats to national security and the efforts made by governments to maintain security for their citizens.

Please note that the distance learning route is only available with a January start.
