Description Focuses on the elements of U.S. maritime and port security.

Examines U.S. and international policies, laws, and agreements governing maritime security, such as the Maritime Transportation Security Act and the International Ship and Port Security Code. Investigates the organizations responsible for maritime and port security in the United States as well as the potential U.S. and global impact of maritime security failures. Offers students an opportunity to explore the response and planning mechanisms for port security as well as irregular and transnational maritime security issues and their relation to the U.S. maritime transportation system.
