Focuses on current events related to terrorism and counterterrorism, as they are discussed in mass media, and the implications of those current events on the ethical and professional conduct of the counterterrorism community. Through a discussion-based seminar, students will bring current, terrorism-related events to classroom discussion, where they will consider the media-framed current events in relation to academic research. Students will be continually challenged to draw connections between terrorism-related events in the news and relevant academic research. Furthermore, this class will use vignettes based in current events to present students with real-world ethical dilemmas that those in the professional counterterrorism community and broader national security community have to confront.
