Our experts: The Leading Centre for the Study of Terrorism

University of St Andrews and the Handa Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence

The late Emeritus Professor Paul Wilkinson was a keen supporter of education for those working in the field of terrorism. At the time (2009), there weren’t any formal education courses specifically aimed at counter-terrorism. He had a vision to offer a course which allowed terrorism and security professionals to be formally recognised for their knowledge.

This led to the University of St Andrews’ Certificate in Terrorism Studies: a first-of-its-kind transnational qualification developed for non-traditional students. The online course provides individuals, military and police, as well as public and private sector organisations with an understanding of the latest thinking on terrorism and homeland security.

Led by Dr Tim Wilson, Director of the Handa Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence (CSTPV), the course faculty is comprised of world leaders in the sphere of Terrorism Studies.
