Online PhD in Counter-Terrorism and Deradicalization
Because it is offered, and uniquely so, by an intergovernmental organization with a specialized mandate in both global affairs and interfaith studies, the EUCLID online PhD in Counter-Terrorism and Deradicalization takes up the challenge of offering a comprehensive doctoral program at the junction of three specialized fields of knowledge and application: (1) international relations (2) science of religion and psychology, and (3) sustainability and global governance.
EUCLID’s online PhD PhD in Counter-Terrorism and Deradicalization is related to EUCLID’s other relevant programs and areas of expertise, such as the PhD in Interfaith Studies and the Master's in Terrorism Studies and Deradicalization.
It is therefore only PhD program in this field of expertise organized by an intergovernmental organization and officially used by senior civil servants over 4 continents. It is also highly relevant to managers and executives working for multinational companies.
EUCLID’s DCTD offers a comprehensive graduate study of the most relevant topics, including historical contextualization, comparative terrorism, islamic radicalization, geopolitical hotspots, deradicalization methods, etc. Graduate can expect to complete the program transformed and enhanced in their ability to make a difference in global counter-terrorism and peacemaking.
This unique PhD focuses on policy and practice and the actual application of theoretical knowledge, rather than the advancement of academic knowledge for its own sake.
EUCLID's programs are used by professional diplomats working for EUCLID Participating States and can be considered an excellent route to pursue a career within governmental bodies, NGOs and international organizations.
Thanks to its low tuition and institutional relationships, it is of special interest to European and African students.
Within certain parameters, the EUCLID Online PhD in Climate Change and Sustainability is customizable, with elective courses focusing on:
Left-wing and right wing radicalization
Interfaith studies for deradicalization.
