What will I learn?

Terrorism isn’t just about religious violence. It can come in many forms such as political violence and transnational crime like money laundering.

In this course, you’ll explore the complex causes of terrorism, how it is shaping the world, and what can be done about it.

As part of your Bachelor of Global Security, you’ll get a deep understanding of the security challenges of the Indo-Pacific region (including Australia) and potential solutions in the form of counterterrorism.

Combining your studies in Global Security with a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) will give you new perspectives on a range of domestic and global issues, and how the law and policies change in response to these issues.
