CRS Acad Level: UG

Course #: JUST2810

Credits: 3

About the Course:

This course examines homeland security intelligence at the federal, state, and local levels. We begin with an overview of the US foreign intelligence community, its mission, history, structure, and capabilities. We examine how this community’s composition and structure have changed as its mission was fundamentally altered twice—first with the end of the Cold War and then with the rise of terrorism. Next, we look at the US homeland security enterprise, its mission, goals and objectives. We then examine the federal, state, and local stakeholders to identify the various customer sets for homeland security intelligence and to gain an overview of their intelligence collection requirements.
