CERTIFICATE IN HOMELAND SECURITY COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

HLS 324 Introduction to Terrorism

AnIntroduction to Terrorism discusses the most sophisticated theories by the best terrorist analysts in the world, while still focusing on the domestic and international threats of terrorism and the basic security issues that surround terrorism today. This student-oriented course is complemented by a wealth of information, and an adequate amount of research and theoretical discussion to make this the ideal course for both the undergraduate- and graduate-level student.
 

HLS 332 The Incident Command System (ICS)

The Incident Command System (ICS) provides coverage of critical skills needed to prepare and manage an Incident Command System. Real situations will be replicated so that the student will encounter hands on learning, which will prove to be a key in planning and conducting events in their careers. ICS will also address the all-important soft skills that are essential for the challenges that lay ahead.
 

HLS 330 Police, Fire, HazMat and Emergency Services Management

Police, Fire, and Emergency Medical Services Management introduces preparedness measures for major events. Disastrous events, whether caused by human or natural disasters attract thousands of participants and/or spectators and the media unwittingly offer opportunity and symbolic benefit for terrorist organizations. Such events present many security challenges as we try trying to anticipate and prevent potential disaster that may occur secondary to the initial emergency. This could involve federal, state and local law enforcement organizations, emergency medical agencies, private and volunteer security forces, and non-government disaster networks.
 

HLS 380 Homeland Security Management Practicum (Simulated Homeland Security Scenario) 

Practicum and Homeland Security Management (Map X) is a comprehensive overview of the structure of Homeland Security, its origins and developing trends. Selected material from Congress, FEMA, Department of Justice, Local, State, and other government Departments and Agencies will be studied with respect to organization, operations, goals, and support. The curriculum will cover both historical and contemporary Homeland Defense and Security issues. There will be special emphasis on strategies and tactics to be used by parties directly or indirectly involved in the development of Homeland Security.
 

PSY 488 Psychology of Terrorism

The Psychology of Terrorism is a collaborative journey through the sinister world of the terrorist mindset and the complex psychological terrain of the victims or intended victims of terrorism. The dynamics of fear, groupthink, religious zealotry and fanaticism, the psychology of counter-terrorism, resilience, hardiness, post-traumatic stress responses-these and more are the subject of this course. It has been argued that terrorism is fundamentally a psychological phenomenon, because more than being about violence and destruction, it is about establishing the debilitating FEAR of unpredictable violence and destruction. In order to understand terrorism and function as a successful agent of counter-terrorism (whether on your job or talking to your children), you will need to gain a command of the concepts and processes we explore in the Psychology of Terrorism.
