Protecting the Nation's homeland security involves the careful integration of many agencies' efforts and resources- both human and material. An important dynamic element in policy making is the significance of American Federalism to the national division of labor addressing security problems. Our federal structure creates unique prohibitions on the use of federal power, but also facilitates experimentation in meeting critical security and emergency preparedness requirements. This course will anchor the exploration of homeland security policy in an appreciation of America's federal history, and address responses to threats and challenges from critical infrastructure cybersecurity to counter terrorism and securing the US' borders and littoral economic interests.
