MPS in Security and Terrorism Studies & Graduate Certificate in Terrorism Analysis
July 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT
An online information session will be held for START’s Master of Professional Studies (MPS) in Security and Terrorism Studies and Graduate Certificate in Terrorism Analysis at 6:00 p.m. ET on July 19, 2023. This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
The MPS in Security and Terrorism Studies prepares students to examine the complex social, political, economic, and psychological underpinnings of terrorist and other asymmetric security threats. Students are exposed to the theoretical and methodological skills necessary to pursue advanced research opportunities, or be successful in a professional role where analysis and critical thinking are paramount.
The program is appropriate for individuals interested in (and/or currently) working in fields related to intelligence analysis, national security analysis, or analysis of other relevant topic areas, and individuals interested in (and/or currently) conducting scholarly research on terrorism and security.
This program is entirely online, delivered in a synchronous format using multiple online platforms provided by the University of Maryland, College Park, and offered through the University of Maryland’s Graduate School.
The National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism—better known as START—is a university-based research and education center comprised of an international network of scholars committed to the scientific study of the causes and human consequences of terrorism in the United States and around the world.
A Department of Homeland Security Emeritus Center of Excellence headquartered at the University of Maryland, START supports the research efforts of leading social scientists at more than 50 academic and research institutions, each of whom is conducting original investigations into fundamental questions about terrorism.
