Want to know more about START’s Global Terrorism Studies Minor? Sign up to attend one of our upcoming information sessions! This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Once you are registered, you will receive the login information before the event.
START has developed an undergraduate minor in Global Terrorism Studies, a cross-disciplinary program housed in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences at the University of Maryland. The minor is designed to train the next generation of terrorism analysts, including students who plan to pursue graduate study related to terrorism as well as employment in the federal, state, local, non-profit, and/or private sectors. The program is part of the University of Maryland’s Global Studies Program, alongside the minors in International Development and Conflict Management, Global Poverty, and Global Engineering Leadership.
START accepts applications to the program from University of Maryland undergraduates once per calendar year, during the spring semester. Students from all colleges and majors may apply.
We will be offering a Virtual information session this spring on February 15th, 2024 at 6:00 PM ET.
The info session will be led by START’s Director of Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Thomas Guarrieri, and START's Education Coordinator, who will discuss how the Global Terrorism Studies Minor Program currently works, what students have to gain from their experience in the program, application requirements, and any other questions attendees may have.
You will receive an email by the morning of the event with detailed information on how to access the session in UMD's Zoom platform via a computer or phone.
