The Terrorism, Security & Society MA is an interdisciplinary course that draws on history, political science, international relations, sociology, social psychology and risk studies to understand international security threats. Given the complex nature of terrorism, this field should be studied from a variety of perspectives. On this course, students will focus on security and counterterrorism issues and on a critical social science approach and analyse society’s response and adaptation to the phenomenon. This course provides an overview of the related theories and paradigms and will prepare students to undertake further research or to enter careers that require an understanding of these issues. This MA is based in the Department of War Studies, one of the only academic departments in the world to focus solely on the complexities of conflict and security. War Studies is an interdisciplinary department and all War Studies students benefit from research-led teaching in such subjects as the history and evolution of war and grand strategy, arms control and non-proliferation, migration, strategic thought, cyber, conflict and the environment, the influence of science and technology on international security, along with regional specialisms covering Africa, Asia (East and South), Russia and elsewhere.
