Understandably, terrorism has been one of the fastest growing areas for study and research over the last few years as we try to get a grip on the issues behind the threat.

This internationally revered Terrorism Studies programme is the most popular choice for knowledge-building amongst military personnel, civil servants, policing professionals, private security organisations, business professionals, first responders and others involved in terrorism prevention and counter terrorism response. Read on to see what students have to say about the course…

It’s the industry’s professional development programme of choice.

Module options:

  • Key Issues in International Terrorism
  • Terrorist Ideologies, Aims, Beliefs & Motivations
  • Terrorist Modus Operandi
  • Homeland Security
  • Radicalisation & De-Radicalisation
  • International Policing Policy
  • Intelligence
  • IEDs: Threats & Countermeasures
  • Critical Infrastructure Protection
  • Aviation Terrorism & Security
  • Maritime Terrorism & Security
  • CBRN Weapons in Terrorism
  • Cyberterrorism
  • Terrorism & Human Rights

You can take 4 modules for the Certificate, 8 for the Advanced Certificate, or start with a module or two and build to the Certificate or Advanced Certificate over time – it’s up to you.

Each module is deigned to be studied over 4 weeks. However, you’re in control of your study plan and can take a shorter or longer time – flexibility is built in to the programme to accommodate your other commitments.

We especially welcome UK and international military personnel who undertake the course, either using ELC funding (provider 2035), are funded by their service units, or using it for their own personal development purposes.
