Designed for both future practitioners and scholars, START’s yearlong, fully online program provides students with advanced education on the causes, dynamics and impacts of international and domestic terrorism. The unique online format enables students to work full- or part-time while advancing their education.
START’s Graduate Certificate in Terrorism Analysis aims to train the next generation of scholars and analysts to examine questions related to the behavior of terrorists and terrorist groups, and how societies can best prepare and respond to terrorist threats and attacks. Students also develop the methodological skills necessary to pursue advanced research on and analysis of terrorism. This four-course, fully online program can be completed in a year. To learn more about the program and courses, visit http://www.start.umd.edu/start/education/academic_programs/gc/.
Eligible applicants must have earned a four-year baccalaureate degree from a regionally-accredited U.S. institution, or an equivalent degree at a foreign university. A 3.0 GPA is preferred, but experience may substitute. GRE scores are not required.
The program accepts applications at three points during the calendar year. This allows upcoming fall, spring, and summer graduates to begin the program soon after they have earned their four-year degree. More information regarding the application deadlines and term timelines can be found on our website.
An online information session will be held on Thursday, March 14th at 5:30pm EST. To join the discussion, RSVP to Jacqueline DeVore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
