2005 Teaching Nonproliferation Summer Institute Collection of Sample Syllabi Prepared by Charles Fagan 6/21/2005 This collection of syllabi, all available on the internet, is meant to provide examples of how some people have approached teaching the subject matter of weapons of mass destruction. They come from both graduate and undergraduate level courses and provide a wide range of possibilities both in organization and content. They were collected by doing several simple searches on Google.com, including Weapons of Mass Destruction Syllabus, Nonproliferation Syllabus, and Nuclear Biological Chemical Weapons Syllabus. Only courses with at least a large section on weapons of mass destruction were included and most are from after 9/11. http://nti.org/h_learnmore/h5_teachtoolkit.html - This teacher’s tool kit on NTI’s website provides overviews of over 40 courses taught around the country on nonproliferation and weapons of mass destruction. Also, there are links to the actual syllabi available for many of the courses.
