Meet the Faculty: MPS in Security & Terrorism Studies (7/21)

Wednesday, July 21, 2021
12:00pm - 1:00pm


Come meet our faculty! On Wednesday, July 21 at 12:00 p.m. ET, Geospatial Research Unit (GRU) researcher Dr. Samuel D. Henkin will provide a virtual talk on his teaching style, learning objectives and course themes in the classes he teaches for START’s MPS in Security & Terrorism Studies. This event is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are required. If you have any questions, please email the START events team at start-events@umd.edu.

Dr. Samuel D. Henkin is a researcher on the Geospatial Research Unit (GRU) at START. His approach to the study of political violence, instability, and conflict is the result of his own geographic education which focused on a rigorous survey of critical theory and methodological multiplicity at the leading-edge of geographic inquiry. Specific research interests include spatial relations of violence in everyday life, the intersections of political geography and security, and political violence in Southeast Asia.

START’s MPS in Security & Terrorism Studies is a 36-credit, fully online graduate program which prepares students to examine the complex social, political, economic, and psychological underpinnings of terrorist and other asymmetric security threats. Students can take classes full- or part-time, and small class sizes enable students to receive the full attention of some of the top experts in the fields of intelligence analysis, national security and terrorism studies. Apply for the Fall 2021 semester by August 3, 2021.
