The Global Terrorism Minor is now accepting applications! This minor is offered to undergraduate students at the University of Maryland in collaboration with The National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START). The Global Terrorism program focuses on exploring the origins and motivations of terrorism based on theoretical understandings of individual and group behavior. Students also explore the impacts of the threat of terrorism on individuals and communities as well as strategies for preventing, deterring, mitigating, and responding to terrorist threats.
As a member of this program, you can expect to gain real-world experience to prepare you for a future in graduate education, research studies, and careers in the homeland security and counterterrorism fields. Although housed in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences, we offer an inter-disciplinary program and encourage individuals from all majors to apply.
