US Nonproliferation and Nuclear Policy

IWP 607
Four credits

The aim of this course is to familiarize the student with the key technical, historical, legal, and practical political factors needed to understand and assess the merits of past, present, and proposed nuclear control policies. The course is not intended to cover every topic related to nuclear energy policy but should give the student the insights and tools needed to investigate them on their own. The aim is to inspire and interest the student to undertake such study both during and after the course.
