Homeland Security - This course examines homeland security and terrorism – domestically and internationally. The development of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will be examined in the context of the global terrorist threat and the more general concept of homeland security. Emphasis is on the identification and understanding of appropriate definitions and concepts so that students may critically evaluate the threats present and the range of responses available in our democratic society. A basic overview of historical foundations will be examined. The relationship of homeland security to preparation and response and recovery mechanisms for terrorism, including goals, objectives, and strategies, will be explored. The importance of coordinating various plans and strategies among local, state, and federal government response organizations will be stressed. Students will review the roles and responsibilities of government agencies, non-government organizations, and individual citizens in homeland security.

During the course of instruction, areas of interest to be explored consist of first aid, fire science, hazardous materials, and emergency prevention and preparedness.
