Awareness of and knowledge about terrorism and counter-terrorism are increasingly essential in a variety of public and private sector organizations. Students in this minor will gain knowledge in competing ideologies that give rise to terrorism, coercive techniques in international affairs, global security management, and key aspects of American security policy. In addition to a core understanding of terrorism, the focus on a specific area of geographic or strategic interest will meet the market needs for individuals with substantive area knowledge. This minor program is available to students from varied disciplines to enhance their capability to address the threat of terrorism and understand how it might impact their own field.
