NSPS 6646 - The Structure of National Security Decisions


This graduate level course provides a multidisciplinary approach to understanding the intuitive, structured and deliberative nature of national security decisions. A global context, the limitations of the human mind along with political and organizational pressures combine to challenge national security decision makers. The purpose of this course is to bias the odds of a wise decision in the decision-makers favor. Lecture, discussion, a writing assignment and several individual and team presentations will be among the teaching methods used. In addition, several partially structured, student-led case studies will be presented to drive the discussions.
3 credit hours.
