This guide was assembled to help students in National Security Affairs in NSU's College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS) Department of History and Political Science. This guide will help students find material that will build a core understanding of critical issues informing the field of national security today, including the assessment and analysis of the threat of terrorism in the U.S. and beyond and the analysis of intelligence collection.
