More About The Course
With the United States involved to varying degrees in major conflicts around the world, issues of terrorism and war are heavily debated on the world stage. This course is designed as an entry point into that debate. It will encourage you to think deeply about terrorism and war and question your assumptions. You will be asked to understand and evaluate multiple perspectives on current issues. You will be encouraged to link ideas from the readings, lectures, and videos to contemporary debate. Our goal is that, by the end of the course, each student will be a more informed citizen of the world and be able to critically examine the policies and positions of their nation's leaders and contribute to national and international debate.
