National Security, Intelligence, and Counterterrorism

Description of National Security, Intelligence, and Counterterrorism Minor

The U.S government once called our primary challenge for this century "the Long War," more popularly known as the War on Terror, but other important long-term national security challenges also loom: the rise of China as a future global leader, energy and natural resource shortages, global warming, and pandemic disease, among others.

This political science minor offers students a range of courses that address the new direct challenges to national security and intelligence gathering posed by threats such as terrorism--primarily global jihadist terrorism--and the impact of unequal resource distribution on global power relationships, among other topics.

Requirements for the Minor for Majors:

Completion of the minor for majors requires 18 credits (six courses). Two political science courses (6 credits) may be counted both toward the minor as well as toward the political science major. Thus a political science major who also wishes to obtain a minor in national security will need to complete at least 17 courses (51 credits).

Requirements for the Minor for Nonmajors:

Completion of this minor requires 18 credits (six courses).

The following foundation course is required but it is NOT a prerequisite for taking the remaining courses listed below:
