Course Overview

9/11 Political Science Online Course | Summer 2019

September 11, 2001 was a tragic day that changed the world in profound ways. In this political science course, students explore the causes of 9/11, the events of the day itself, and its aftermath locally, nationally, and around the world. In place of a standard chronological framework, students instead view these events through a series of separate lenses.

A Comprehensive Picture: Studying All the Angles

Each lens represents a different way to view the attacks and allows students to understand 9/11 as an event with complex and interrelated causes and outcomes. Using a variety of technologies and activities, students work individually and with peers to evaluate each lens. Students then analyze the post-9/11 period and explore how this event affected the U.S., the Middle East, and the wider world.

Award-Winning, In-Depth Teaching Experience

The teachers of this course have been recognized by the 9/11 Tribute Center for their outstanding contribution to student understanding of the events of September 11, 2001.
