About

The Terrorism, Security and Society MA at King's College London is an interdisciplinary course that draws on history, political science, international relations, sociology, social psychology and risk studies to understand international security threats. 

Overview

Because of the complex nature of terrorism, we believe it is valuable to study it from a variety of perspectives. On this Terrorism, Security and Society MA at King's College London, you will focus on security and counterterrorism issues and on a critical social science approach, and analyse society’s response and adaptation to the phenomenon.

Key benefits

  • Our unrivalled mix of ‘professional’ (such aspolice, security, law, media) and ‘traditional’ (e.g. psychology, classics, war studies, geography) students creates an interactive, engaging and dynamic classroom experience.
  • You will have the opportunity to link your MA dissertation with government and other professional departments in order to gain exclusive access and hands-on experience.
  • Close links and regular speakers from government and emergency response organisations will give you insights and up-to-the-minute knowledge of the subject area.
  • Adds a unique element to the way in which the issues of terrorism and security are understood by addressing the multi-dimensional and multi-disciplinary nature of the phenomenon.
