Terrorism does not emerge from, nor does it exist in, a vacuum. This course examines the various societal conflicts and dynamics that contribute to the rise, and continuing growth, of terrorism, as well as some of the psychological factors that may contribute to the development of individual terrorists. This course will further examine the effects that terrorism has on societies and how societies have learned to adapt to, and cope with, this ever-spreading form of political, religious, and social violence.
Examine some of the main social causes that are central to most conflicts (class, political, ideological/religious, and ethnic).
Gain a conceptual and experiential grounding in the complex environment, multiple challenges, and potential interdependent nature of threats facing political leaders.
Improve your ability to identify, critically analyze, and forcefully articulate threats to North America, and make policy recommendations to domestic leadership.
Enhance your ability to listen and communicate accurately and precisely and to work effectively with others on the nature of threats facing the U.S.
Further prepare you as effective leaders and managers in homeland defense and homeland security organizations.
