Course Description

Credits: 8 ECTS

Academics: Online classes will take place at 9:00 CET Monday-Friday for two hours. Classes are structured as discussions and students are expected to participate in the live lectures. This course stands out from other online courses with its emphasis on seminar style discussion.

General: Virtual site visits will be arranged with the UN in Vienna and Radio Free Europe, among others. These will take place after the class time.

Virtual ‘coffee hours’ will be offered throughout the week to provide a space for students to ask questions that may come up, and to get to have a chance to better know who is in the course. They are not required, but are encouraged.

Learning outcomes: This program is designed to give students an understanding of some of the fundamental international security issues and their implications for Europe and the world, while also expanding intercultural connections.

Lecture topics:

- Concept of Security and development of security arrangements

- Extremist threats and Military Sphere

- Energy Security

- Cyber Security

- Information Warfare

- Religious Radicalism and its threat for Europe

- Current security arrangements in Europe and its position in the world

Final grades will be awarded using the A-F grading system. Grades are based on daily quizzes, participation in online courses, a final project, and a final paper.

The final group project is meant to showcase what students have learned over the course and apply their knowledge. Through working in groups, students will gain a valuable skillset in giving virtual presentations and will have the opportunity to work with people from different cultures, hence expanding their intercultural communication skills.
