About the Course:

Terrorism has become a household term played upon by media and political figures. But what exactly is terrorism? How long has it existed? What is America doing to combat terrorism, and are the tactics working? This course seeks theoretically and analytically to examine the concept of terrorism, presently and historically. We will begin the course with some of the definitional problems, as well as some of the general tactics and concepts of terrorism. We will then turn the discussion to issues of domestic terrorism, religious terrorism, and suicide terrorism. This course concludes with some of the major implications of the “war on terror,” the Patriot Act, and immigration. Prerequisite: JUST1200, Introduction to Homeland Security
