CJ 2051 - National Security

3 Credits (Minimum) 3 Credits (Maximum)

The premise of this course is that national security strategy, and strategic decisions, are not made in a vacuum. Instead, they are in part shaped by, and help shape, domestic political debates and processes occurring at the time of the decision. Diplomatic, military and intelligence capabilities, the three facets of national security policy, are presented within the context of domestic and international concerns. The course examines the national interests, institutions and processes involved in making national security and intelligence policy and explores the tensions that recur in American politics between the necessities of security and the requirements of democracy.
