This renowned online course – from the Handa Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence at the University of St Andrews – is recognised as the best globally accessible, flexible, tutored, online part-time study solution for professionals who want to develop their knowledge and understanding of the subject, hone their analysis skills in countering the terrorism and security threat, or prepare themselves for future higher academic study.

If it’s part of your responsibility to protect a sovereign state, people, infrastructure, organisations or investments, understanding the threat is crucial – whether this is to governments and homeland security, transport networks, investments, private organisations or to the public. Understanding this threat involves knowing who is involved, how and why they act and their capacity to inflict harm.
