Master of Policing, Intelligence and Counter Terrorism (MPICT)
"Macquarie University provides the opportunity to obtain an internationally recognised and respected postgraduate qualification, whilst remaining relevant to Australian institutions and security issues. Furthermore, the ability to extend professional networking possibilities both within Australia and across the globe is an invaluable intangible benefit. The multi-disciplinary mix of highly respected, experienced lecturers and tutors sourced locally and from abroad provides a truly relevant and practical flavour to the course content."
"The MPICT program has allowed me to improve and focus on my research, writing, and critical thinking skills in a highly professional and challenging environment. I have broadened my world view of how the state, transnational corporations and groups of individuals interact. Many aspects in this area of study are highly nuanced and contentious as revealed by the literature. Learning to question the peer reviewed literature and to compare the various schools of thought is an important learning outcome. The MPICT program has broadened how I can view the many elements that constitute and influence change in a rapidly evolving world wide security environment."
