Counter Terrorism Studies
Associate of Arts
The Associate of Arts in Counter Terrorism Studies explores the origins and motivations for terrorism, and terrorist strategy and tactics. Terrorism presents real challenges to government and national security communities due to the many different domestic and international terrorist groups, each with their own leadership, motivations, political objectives, and tactics. The fact that these groups continue to evolve and mature in their capability means even greater challenges lay ahead for the U.S. military and government agencies involved in combating terrorism and in ensuring national security.
