The National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) is now accepting applications for Terrorism Studies Minor Program for undergraduates at the University of Maryland. The Terrorism Studies program is a cross-disciplinary minor housed in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences.

The minor is open to students from any major and is designed to train the next generation of terrorism analysts, including students who plan to pursue graduate study related to terrorism as well as employment in the federal, state, local, non-profit, and/or private sectors.

The program focuses on exploring the origins and motivations of terrorism based on theoretical understandings of individual and group behavior, as well as the impacts of terrorist incidents and the threat of terrorism on groups and individuals. Applicants must be full-time undergraduates at the University of Maryland, College Park, and must have completed 30 credits with a record of high academic achievement.
