The threat of terrorism is a constant concern prompting a continuing focus on preventing and resolving terrorist attacks. In this specialization, students will learn the immediate and long-term implications of anti-terrorist legislation and policies. They will study how terrorism policies are drafted and enforced while they analyze the ethical issues related to human rights and the psychology of terrorism. Students will explore the effects of disaster, crisis, and trauma and the appropriate interventions for individuals and groups. And students will examine the roots of international and domestic terrorism, the catalysts and motivations for terrorist acts, and how media and technology may aid or counter terrorist activities.
