What is terrorism studies?
Terrorism has existed for hundreds of years. Yet since the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, terrorism has become a top priority of U.S. national and homeland security, including the intelligence community, the DOD, FBI, CIA, DHS and State Department. Additionally, acts of terrorism continue to challenge the national security interests of not only the United States but many other states. To combat the threats of terrorism, much has been done in the domestic and international arenas. The terrorism studies minor draws from different academic disciplines to give you a broad understanding of this phenomenon and how states may counter terrorist threats.
