The Terrorism Studies minor fuses courses in homeland security, global Studies, political science and history to give students a holistic view of the subject of terrorism, our relations with the international community, and the policies put in place to address common goals of security, economic stability, and human rights.
Students will learn about global and domestic politics and of the origins, ideologies and goals of terrorist groups, strengthening their understanding of foreign policy. From Russia’s conflict with Chechen rebels to Al Qaeda and Boko Haram in Middle Eastern and African countries, students will explore the international, political, ideological and cultural issues that shape this dangerous phenomenon.
The Terrorism Studies minor requires students to complete five courses (20 credits).
All five courses applied to the Terrorism Studies minor must be completed with a minimum grade of C- and an overall GPA of 2.0. Students must take at least three 500-level or above courses to complete the minor.
