Eight students will be among the first to learn about terrorism and security in Simon Fraser University’s new highly-specialized program in September.
Designed for Masters students, the “Terrorism, Risk & Security Studies Program” is reportedly the second of its kind in the world and features online courses for those working in the intelligence fields, including law enforcement.

SFU describes the program as:
A unique, interdisciplinary program, delivered completely online, that addresses security challenges from a number of perspectives. The TRSS program leverages SFU’s recognized strengths in Terrorism Studies, Human Intelligence, Computation and Big Data, Risk Assessment, Decision Analysis, and Public Policy to address security issues from a variety of diverse, yet complimentary, disciplinary perspectives.
Due to the unique and privileged access our program faculty have to local, national, and international security and intelligence groups, the new TRSS MA Program will be able to offer a wide range of specialized course content to not only ensure the dissemination of industry best practices, but also encourage a broader perspective among security and intelligence professionals.
Program faculty members have received extensive training, and are frequently consulted by national and international organizations.
Terrorism, Risk & Security Studies was designed in light of recent terrorist activity.
