NS3180: Introduction to Homeland Security
Syllabus — text.
Chris Bellavita and Nadav Morag.
This course provides an overview of the essential ideas that constitute the emerging discipline of homeland security. It has two central objectives: to expand the way participants think, analyze and communicate about homeland security; and to assess knowledge in critical homeland security knowledge domains: including strategy, history, terrorism, fear management, crisis communication, conventional and unconventional threats, network leadership, weapons of mass destruction, lessons learned from other nations, civil liberties and security, intelligence and information, homeland security technology, and analytics. The course is organized around an evolving narrative about what homeland security leaders need and how the CHDS program helps address those needs.
This resource is available to CHDS alumni and participants in the University and Agency Partnership Initiative (UAPI) and requires a login (about the UAPI program).
