Course summary

Why study terrorism? At Salford, we believe that while it’s important to learn about the history of terrorism, as well as how governments approach achieving and maintaining security. It’s also vital to consider the bigger picture.

Studying a Masters degree in terrorism and security is about learning how to systematically analyse and assess the phenomena of terrorism and counter-terrorism. It’s also about developing your ability to critique current research, while deep-diving into the responses that issues of terrorism and security provoke from states and state organisations such as the police.

Whether you’re studying to inform your chosen career path or simply because you’re looking for further study in an area that’s interesting to you, the professional research and analysis skills you’ll develop during your time on the course will benefit you in any number of careers.

TEACHING:

If you choose to study in person, you’ll be based at our Peel Park campus, where you’ll attend one three-hour session per week for each module. These sessions will consist of introductory lectures and seminar discussions.

Distance learning modules are run via BlackBoard, the virtual learning environment. Each week a podcast lecture will be provided, as will key readings, a further reading list and online discussion questions. You will listen to the podcast, engage with the key readings, and actively contribute to online discussions in response to questions set by your lecturers.

CAREER LINKS:

You have the opportunity to attend stimulating guest lectures, seminars and conferences, which bring researchers and practitioners together. These will make you better informed as to how the industry works and your current or future place within it.

The course’s broad introduction to cutting-edge research and current academic controversies offers an excellent foundation for further in-depth research into terrorism and security issues.

The University’s Politics and Contemporary History Research Centre builds on the active research programme provided by the Politics and Contemporary History seminar series.

Students can also achieve PGDip award.
