This course explores evolving concepts of security and possible responses to security threats including, but not limited to, the threat and use of military force. Although a portion of the semester is devoted to the study of U.S. national security issues, this is not exclusively a course in U.S. national security policy. Security will be explored from international and global perspectives as well. Attention will also be devoted to the emergence of so-called non-traditional threats to security (e.g., economic instability, environmental degradation, human rights violations, ethnic conflicts and organized crime). This course can also count toward the global studies program.
G: International and Global Perspectives
D: Courses not offered on a regular schedule but at the discression of the department, on the basis of student interest and ability to arrange schedules of faculty
