Why choose this course?

• You’ll be able to assess the impact on freedoms and critically evaluate the legal and practical implications for counter terrorism policy in the UK and elsewhere.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Understanding Radicalisation addresses one of societies major challenges, socially, psychologically, politically and environmentally. This course gives you the opportunity to practice conceptual theory across the fields of terrorism studies, including examining security and intelligence through the use of critical academic analysis and using applied sociological and criminological perspectives.

The course offers 60 credits at level 7, developed through three modules: Understanding Radicalisation, Concepts of Global Terrorism and Contemporary Issues in Intelligence and Security, each separately assessed as 20 credits per module.

The PG Cert currently stands alone in a growing suite of programmes leading to Masters qualifications and is uniquely focused on the practical application of academic theory. This course supports the continuing professional development of those who seek careers, or are already engaged in, sectors significantly impacted by the issues of radicalisation, vulnerability, security, intelligence, safeguarding and policy.

The academic input from sociology, criminology and intelligence includes additional expertise from the International Policing and Justice Institute and Derby Law School at the University of Derby. Guest speakers include professionals in the fields of policing, intelligence, security, and intervention.

Flexibility and choice

The MRes Humanities differs from other taught masters programmes because of its strong emphasis on research methods and skills. It will appeal to students seeking a greater degree of independence in their studies and who relish the challenge of intellectual rigour and self-development.

The MRes can be taken as a full Masters programme, a Postgraduate Diploma in Humanities or a named subject, or a Postgraduate Certificate in Humanities. At the Postgraduate Diploma and Masters level, it may be appropriate to add a named award reflecting your subject specialism, such as MRes in Humanities (Film Studies) or PGDip in Humanities (Liberal Arts).

The full Masters programme culminates in a dissertation or negotiated project in which you will pursue substantive independent research into a subject of your choice. This will either be through a more traditional postgraduate dissertation or through a negotiated research-based project which might involve different forms of assessment and scholarly activities.
