M.A. in National Security and Terrorism
 
Homeland is not just a TV show
 
Since 2001, greater international attention is given to the fields of security and counter-terrorism. The world of security has changed as new kinds of struggles and resistances arose. Guerilla fighting, three-block war, false coverage – these are all new features of modern confrontations. Another major area to consider is the effects of new technology (mainly software-based) on security operations.
 
M.A. in National Security can be the answer for people who wish to understand better the threats and challenges their country is facing. In Israel, you can find Master degree programs in English that draw on firsthand experience for discussing these important issues.
 
Study Programs
 
National Security Studies aim to provide the full picture regarding homeland security and counter-terrorism activities. The programs include classes in social sciences such as politics, sociology and economics in order to give an in-depth portrayal of the conditions that may lead to terrorist attacks. Students will learn of military and diplomatic ways to deal with political unrest.
 
Practical Learning
 
Throughout the programs, meetings with former and current military officials and politicians are held. In the lectures, students learn of case studies which involve considerations of right diplomatic and military measures. They also go on tours to IDF bases.
 
Participants must complete a required number of practicum hours. They can achieve that by assisting academic researches or by interning in Israeli security organizations. The list of open internships is provided by the faculty.
