Course number and section: 
IS 102
4 hours

This is an in-depth country information briefing of the region or specific country to which you are traveling to. This open-source informational presentation will cover (at a minimum) the type of government found there, the physical environment, the infrastructure, and touch upon the major communication nodes, media, and economy.  Of special note will be the social culture and customs found there. Briefing highlights will include current issues such as terrorist threats, criminal threats, and health threats.  Other highlights will cover significant holidays and social “dos and don’ts”.  The first two hours brief the country study summary and locations within the study to find the highlights.  The following two hours cover issues and highlight in-depth social concerns.
