GOVT150 CM - U.S. National Security Policy

In this course, we will engage with both theory and case evidence to analyze U.S. national security policy. We begin by examining the concepts of national security and vital interests. How are they defined? Who defines them? How have they changed over time? We will examine how national security policies are developed and applied. We will explore the ways in which policy decision making involves complex trade-offs among competing goals and values, and will practice policy decision making ourselves through a policy round-table session and a National Security Council simulation.
