POL 362 Terrorism and International Relations

3 hours 

This course engages students in the study of terrorism and counter-terrorism by analyzing the international political implications of terrorist activity. Framed by theories of international relations, the course explores topics such as international security, international organizations, human rights and foreign aid. In this way, students will assess the impact of the "global war on terror," and compare and contrast the post-9/11 period with earlier efforts to suppress terrorism.




ENG 201, and GOV 101 or POL 101. In addition, GOV 260 or POL 260 is strongly recommended.
