Contemporary Warfare

MAS 620

This course affords you the opportunity to investigate current global conflicts from multiple perspectives. Begin by examining the definition of warfare, the key terms associated with warfare, and how both have changed over time. Become familiar with the history of warfare, its weapons, and how wars begin and end. The latter half of the course provides an overview of ongoing contemporary military conflicts between the United States and various adversaries including China, Russia, Iraq, North Korea, and Afghanistan. An emphasis is placed on how technology is changing the way the United States (and our adversaries) achieve military objectives in the air, on land, in and under the sea, and in cyberspace.
