SEC 220 Terrorism, Security and Emergency Management

3 hours

Using a multidisciplinary lens, this course critically evaluates discourses, narratives, and perspectives on terrorism, counterterrorism, and antiterrorism, and promotes evidence-based analyses of “what works” and “what does not work” in countering and combating terrorism. In this course, students differentiate between different forms of terrorism by examining the structure, goals, tactics, targets and ideologies of international and domestic terrorists, and carefully consider existing national and international antiterrorism and counterterrorism measures. Special attention is paid to the role of private security in counterterrorism and antiterrorism, and the obstacles these professionals encounter in identifying terrorists and responding to, preparing for, and mitigating terrorism.
