The world is currently afflicted by many forms of political violence, from civil war and mass killings in the name of religion and ideology, to the radicalisation of people for terrorism.
In this Master of Conflict and Terrorism Studies from University of Auckland you can advance your knowledge and skills in the study of war, ethnic and religious conflict, cybercrime, terrorism and radicalisation.
You can learn from researchers who have worked for international institutions such as the United Nations and World Bank.
You can develop your potential for roles in government and security, international organisations, policy making, peacekeeping and post-conflict development.
Our graduates in this field have careers in government agencies, non-governmental and corporate organisations in a number of countries.
