Plan of Study - MPS in Security & Terrorism Studies


Overview

The MPS-Security & Terrorism Studies is a 36-credit online graduate program designed to be completed in four semesters of full-time study. Part-time enrollment is welcome. UMD’s online learning environment delivers online content through easy to use web-based technology that enables learning in an engaging, interactive environment. Instruction is provided by university faculty and experts in the field. 

See the sample plan of study, below. Students should use this as a guide to develop a plan with the program director. The program uses the semester academic calendar with classes held in fall and spring semester (16 weeks each). Full-time students enroll in three 3-credit courses over the course of four semesters (9 credits each fall, spring, fall, spring). 

Specific class meeting information (days and time) is posted on UMD’s interactive web services site, Testudo. Once on that site, select “Schedule of Classes,” then the term/year. Courses are listed by academic unit.
