Course content

This hugely topical course will enable you to get to grips with the theory and practice of terrorism and counter-terrorism.

Our students come from a wide range of backgrounds. Some have just finished their undergraduate studies, often in social sciences, criminology, politics or similar subjects, and are aiming for a career in a criminal justice or related role. Others are already working for the police, prison service or in another crime or security-related role.

All classes take place in the evening, so you will have the flexibility to keep working if you wish. To thrive on this course you should be motivated, open-minded and willing to engage with different perspectives, working in groups as well as on your own.

As a master’s student you will be expected to undertake a significant amount of independent study and research, but you will have the support of committed staff and an enthusiastic group of fellow students.

Our academic team includes several world-renowned experts and researchers in the field of terrorism.

Professor Andrew Silke, MSc Programme Director, has published more than 100 articles or books on terrorism, conflict, crime and policing and is regularly called upon by the international media to provide his expert opinion.

He has worked with numerous government departments and law enforcement and security agencies across the world. He serves on the United Nations Roster of Terrorism Experts and the European Commission’s European Network of Experts on Radicalisation.

Dr Anthony Richards has contributed to briefings on terrorism and radicalisation at the Home Office and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and has published on a wide range of themes, including terrorism in sport and homeland security.

Dr John Morrison has given more than 20 conference and seminar presentations both nationally and internationally on topics such as Irish Republicanism, paramilitary vigilantism and the Northern Ireland peace process.
