Master of Public Administration (M.P.A.) - Terrorism, Mediation and Peace
Offered By: Walden University
Learn the immediate and long-term implications of anti-terrorist legislation and policies. Study how terrorism policies are drafted and enforced while you analyze the ethical issues related to human rights and the psychology of terrorism. Explore the effects of disaster, crisis and trauma and the appropriate interventions for individuals and groups. Examine the roots of international and domestic terrorism, the catalysts and motivations for terrorist acts, and how media and technology may aid or counter terrorist activities. Across the public sector spectrum, career opportunities are predicted to expand rapidly over the next five years. At every levelâ€”federal, state, and localâ€”this growth trend in employment will fuel a demand for qualified managers who can lead public agencies or direct public policy organizations.* Prepare to advance your career and to meet this increasing need for public sector professionals as you gain the skills to translate public policies into effective programs and projects. International themes and concepts incorporated throughout your coursework will broaden your perspective of public service. Walden's M.P.A. program can be completed in less than two years, depending on individual progress and credits transferred.
