Terrorism is now the single most critical national and international security threat and issue.

Much of the course material concentrates on the operational aspects of international terrorism and thereby allows for subsequent analysis for counterterrorism policy formulation. Comprehensive in scope, this course will cover a wide range of relevant topics from the historical background and roots to the sociological, economic, and psychological aspects of International Terrorism to the actual operational factors of International Terrorism. This concept of International Terrorism will be explored in an operational light and within the context of the policymaker and the national and international security policy formulation, execution and evaluation domain.
