PSCI 3703 - International Security and Terrorism


3 credits

[Meets the Core Curriculum Writing Practice Requirement] This course deals with International Security, National Security, Terrorism, and Intelligence gathering (spying). We examine various aspects of deterrence theory as well as various theories of war fighting in order to understand the behavior of nation-states as they attempt to secure themselves. The events of 9/11 have changed the primary focus of security issues to the war on terrorism, but have not changed the need of traditional security in the nuclear age. This is a thinking class that will require you to think outside of your normal understanding. Students will need to think in military terms and from the point of view of political leadership. It is hoped that you will achieve an appreciation of the complexity of international security issues and that you will desire to learn more as both a student and a citizen. (Same as LEGL 3703)
