This three or six credit course is an interdisciplinary approach to national security, homeland security, and Atlantic cooperation. It begins with a detailed look at the history of the U.K. then at national security strategy and counter-terrorism concerns such as ISIS, Iraq, and Syria. It places an emphasis on United States, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and European Union (EU) collaboration, discussing strategies from President Bush’s Global War on Terrorism through President Obama’s Global Counterinsurgency. The U.K.’s CONTEST plan is discussed regarding Atlantic cooperation. An emphasis is placed upon U.S. and U.K Intelligence, with key U.K. Intelligence Officials lecturing to the class. Blending National Security into Homeland Security, how the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) operates is also studied and compared to the U.K.’s COBRA plan, with key U.K. Homeland Security speakers. Class visits include the 7/7/2005 Memorial Site in Hyde Park; the American Embassy London; the U.K. Royal High Courts of Justice; and Westminster Abbey.
