Terrorism Studies at the University of St Andrews
To mark Armed Forces Day, KNect365 Learning is pleased to announce a 50% discount on individual modules for serving members of the Armed Forces and Army Reserves for the University of St Andrews Terrorism Studies course.
Dr Tim Wilson, Director at the Handa Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence, has this message: ‘Handa CSTPV at the University of St Andrews very warmly welcomes applications to our Certificate programme from serving members of the Armed Forces. As the oldest such centre in Europe dedicated solely to understanding the threat of terrorism, we have very long experience of offering guided learning to practitioners from a wide variety of counter-terrorism backgrounds, but the military has always occupied a central place for us within that wider learning environment. We recognise that terrorism often arises from complex military contexts such as insurgencies and occupations. And we recognise, too, that a careful and calibrated deployment of military capability often lies at the heart of successful counter-terrorist efforts as well.
‘The Certificate is designed to offer an experience of studying terrorism that balances both breadth and depth of knowledge, and does so in a format that is both explicitly flexible and digestible for individual learners. Students can study at their own pace, while being able to select from a wide variety of available modules. Our aim is that this format will allow you to concentrate on core areas of interest, and to fit that learning around the demanding and unpredictable challenges of military life. In short, we very much hope you will consider the Certificate as your own learning pathway.’
