The University of Maryland’s Undergraduate Minor in Global Terrorism Studies is a cross-disciplinary program housed in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences. Students in the program explore the origins and motivations of terrorism based on theoretical understandings of individual and group behavior and on available empirical data. Students also explore the impacts of the threat of terrorism on a wide range of communities as well as strategies for mitigating terrorist threats. 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 corporate sectors.
