Lifelong Learning: On Demand – An Introduction to Security and Resilience

Online Course

Event Website

We live in a world of increasing transnational risks, systemic vulnerabilities, and environmental challenges. Security and Resilience Studies is an emerging field of inquiry that focuses on how global, national, and subnational actors manage a range of chronic transnational challenges that can be destabilizing to societies such as terrorism, organized crime, weapons proliferation, cyber attacks, bio-terrorism, climate change and catastrophic disasters, migration, and radicalization.

Stay ahead of the curve and keep your finger on the pulse of what’s next! As you look for ways to be more resilient, use the month of February to be a part of this online course, An Introduction to Security and Resilience. Learn from leading faculty members about terrorism, resilient cities, coastal adaptation, and energy resilience. This is a preview into the course offerings of the Master of Science in Security and Resilience Studies program. The master’s program provides skills in data analysis, leadership, and systemic thinking to help the next generation of leaders build organizations, communities, and societies that can withstand forthcoming challenges.

Begin the course at any time during the month of February, completing the modules at your own pace. Get an exclusive sneak peek into graduate level courses, from the comfort of your home (or office, or coffee shop – it’s up to you!). The biweekly content modules should take about two hours to view and read. Registrants will begin to receive biweekly course email updates on February 1, 2018.

What you'll learn:
