INSC 313 Global Security & Intelligence 3 Cr.
Students examine a range of contemporary international issues – from questions of realism versus idealism in foreign affairs to changes in the nation-state, the rise and influence of member states in the Pacific Rim, and overall global security objectives all through a historical lens. Students explore the uses of strategic intelligence by world leaders in shaping policy and the effects of strategic intelligence on world events. Students closely follow international developments and learn how to discuss them objectively and analytically. Areas of emphasis include science, technology, and globalization as the environment in which concepts of international security evolve and change over time.
