More than ever before, governments, international agencies, and major corporations recognise the need for personnel with a strong grasp of terrorism, security and policing issues who can also demonstrate exceptional skills of research and analysis.

With this in mind, we've developed entirely online courses in Security, Counter-Terrorism, Intelligence and Policing, allowing you to:

  • Examine key themes and debates shaping these concepts;
  • Address critical areas of contemporary concern within security & counter terrorism, such as foreign policy or the role of radicalisation in international politics;
  • Gain a solid academic grounding in criminology, terrorism, policing and intelligence.

All of this without having to take time off work!
