Criminal Justice: Terrorism

  • Typically offered every other year

This course will focus on terrorism and the law, including topics such as anti-terrorism legislation, terrorism investigations and prosecutions, the Classified Information Procedures Act, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, and military detention and prosecution of suspected terrorists. There may be comparative analysis of other countries’ anti-terrorism laws. Grading will be based on a final examination and possibly a short writing assignment (not more than 25%). Students interested in writing a paper to satisfy the “writing intensive experience” or “capstone” requirement may, with the instructor’s permission, do a paper in addition to the examination.
