CJS 267 Introduction to Security Studies 3.0 Credits
This course examines the private security industry. Substantive topics of interest include the historical development of the industry; its linkage to public forms of security (law enforcement and the regulatory state); its legal underpinnings; management issues; and the nature of internal and external threats faced by facilities and organizations. The philosophical and analytic paradigm for security -- risk analysis and prevention -- offers a framework for the study of problem solving models used in the field. This framework, along with the analytic models utilized by security professionals will be explored in depth.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
