Saint Leo students can learn from experts about counterterrorism tactics and measures during an eight-day course in Israel.
This spring, students in any of Saint Leo University’s on-ground or online criminal justice degree programs have the opportunity to participate in a unique, advanced homeland security course being held in Israel.
The intensive, eight-day course – Terrorism in Israel – will focus on critical issues regarding terrorism philosophy, tactics, methodology, and the ancient origins of this global threat. It will take place May 16-24.
While visiting Haifa, the Gaza Strip, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Masada, the Dead Sea, and Israel's northern border, students will learn about counterterrorism tactics and measures from the world’s foremost authorities on the subject: the Israeli Defense Forces (I.D.F.), the Israeli National Police, the Massad, and Israeli Special Forces.
