Global Terrorism Minor - Accepting Applications Until Sept 30

The Global Terrorism Minor is now accepting applications! This minor is offered to undergraduate students at the University of Maryland in collaboration with The National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START). The Global Terrorism program focuses on exploring the origins and motivations of terrorism based on theoretical understandings of individual and group behavior. Students also explore the impacts of the threat of terrorism on individuals and communities as well as strategies for preventing, deterring, mitigating, and responding to terrorist threats.

As a member of this program, you can expect to gain real-world experience to prepare you for a future in graduate education, research studies, and careers in the homeland security and counterterrorism fields.  

If you want to learn more about the Minor before applying, START will hold two information sessions to discuss details and answer student questions.

  • Session 1: Thursday, September 15th from 4:30 pm-6:00 pm in Tydings Hall, Room 1102
  • Session 2: Monday, September 19th from 5:00 pm-6:30 pm in Tydings Hall, Room 1101
