Current Events: Current Event assignments are designed to give you an opportunity to critically examine contemporary Homeland Security issues related to a Homeland Security topic.  You are challenged to find news articles, press releases, industry announcements, etc. that impact some aspect of Homeland Security. National and international events may be used, but MUST be related to a Homeland Security Topic.


  • A new piece of legislation passed, refused, or currently being debated by Congress, impacting DHS
  • A security company announcing release of a new product or tool designed to protect people or property (e.g. new scanners at the airport)
  • A terrorist event happens here or abroad, and the response to it. Please limit this to recent incidents (less than 1 year), but can include incidents or thwarted attacks still being discussed and debated in the media.

There is 2 Page length requirement to a Current Event assignment.  At minimum, each must include a Summary of the Event (with citation), the perceived impact of the event on the Homeland Security landscape, and your opinion of the event, including a defense of your opinion.  Each paper must also include a “works cited page” not included in the 2-page minimum.
