The practicum is the culmination of the learning process where theory is put into practice. For the security studies major, there are two options for this final effort. First, students can elect to research a specific element of foreign or domestic terrorism. This would require an in depth study of a particular group, with a final product of a mitigation or co-opting strategy. The alternative is an emergency management project that would include the creation of a detailed emergency preparation or response action plan. The plan would be based on a risk analysis that includes critical infrastructure protection, threat prioritization, and intelligence analysis.
