Winter 2017 Online Courses with START

Are you looking to gain a marketable skill that many employers in the intelligence community and security field value in applicants? The National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism (START) is offering Winter 2017 online courses.

There will be three one-credit courses, perfect anyone who wants to acquire a tangible skill over their winter break, when you may not otherwise have time during traditional semesters. These courses are: Geospatial Analysis of Terrorism (BSST399F), Criminal Behavioral Profiling (BSST399P), and Social Network Analysis of Terrorism (BSST399N).

These courses are designed for students with little to no previous knowledge of the subject area, so all are welcome to enroll. Additionally, we offer a three-credit course called The Rise of ISIS (BSST338P), which takes an in-depth approach of analyzing the many complicated facets of ISIS.

All of the courses are based online, so you can complete them from anywhere. Register through Testudo today if you are interested in security studies or want to gain skills relevant to a career in intelligence!
