Understanding Radicalisation


Course Description

• Develop your understanding of the nature and causes of radicalisation
• Examine theories of radicalisation to provide you with a basis for a critical approach to policy-making strategies
• Investigate social and political concerns for security and critically assess these against traditional institutional formats

Our Postgraduate Certificate in Understanding Radicalisation addresses one of society’s major challenges socially, psychologically, politically and environmentally.

It gives you the opportunity to examine conceptual theory across the fields of terrorism studies including critical academic analysis of security and intelligence. You’ll apply sociological and criminological perspectives throughout.

You’ll learn through evening teaching sessions which include lectures, seminars, workshops, guest speaker sessions and practical classes, as well as scenario testing and analysis.

Completion of the course could result in careers in the civil service, policing, intelligence and security and human rights organisations.
