Why study Master of Counter-Terrorism Studies?

The September 11 attacks, Bali bombings and home-grown operations in London and those thwarted in Australia, have increased the significance of understanding terrorism and political violence.

The Master of Counter-Terrorism Studies offers a rigorous course of study that evaluates these multifaceted phenomena. The course provides an understanding of what terrorism is and how it is constructed and reproduced. It also addresses the diverse and multifaceted actors involved in enacting and preventing terrorism and other security concerns.

Students explore a range of areas including terrorisms (state, religious, revolutionary and right wing); the political, theological and intellectual bases of terrorism; political violence and political movements; and country and regional studies.

This course is ideal for students who wish to pursue graduate study in these areas, as well as professionals working in law enforcement, public service, defence and diplomacy.
