The National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism (START) will begin accepting applications for the undergraduate minor in Terrorism Studies later this semester. Students from all colleges and majors are encouraged to apply for the minor, which is housed in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences at the University of Maryland. The program provides 30 students with the proper education and training needed to further pursue education at the graduate level or professional advancement in fields related to homeland security.
The Terrorism Studies minor is designed to explore the origins and motivations of terrorism and impacts of the threat of terrorism on both individuals and communities. Throughout this five-course program, students will learn strategies for preventing, deterring, mitigating and responding to terrorist threats.
START will hold two information sessions about the minor.
