INTEL 344 - Weapons of Mass Destruction (3 credits)

(Prereq: POLI 101  or permission of the instructor) This course examines the spread of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons, as well as ballistic missiles. These systems taken together are commonly referred to as weapons of mass destruction, or WMD. Students learn what nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons and ballistic missiles are, and who has or might have such weapons. Students also study the actual and theoretical use of WMD by states and terrorists, consider their strategic value as instruments of national security, and grapple with problems of arms control, disarmament, and intelligence.  F, S.
