PSYC 6771 - Terrorism: A Systemic Approach for Emergency Preparedness


(5 cr.) Terrorism continues to be a constant threat to the American public, which leads to facilitating the need for accurate information, organized resources, and established approaches to respond to emergencies and to keep the public informed. Students in this course examine terrorism and related public policy on a local, national, and international level. They also assess the need and function of systemic approaches for emergency preparedness. Students explore and discuss topical issues, such as terrorism and public health, bioterrorism, biosecurity, cyber terrorism, risk assessment, implications for public health, and components of a systemic preparedness infrastructure. Using analytic skills and tools, students assess recommendations that policymakers use in decisions to prevent or respond to terrorism. They also gain hands-on experience initiating the development and/or analysis of a terrorism-preparedness infrastructure.
