At the end of this course, students will have a better picture of what espionage really is, not just a Hollywood genre. They will have an understanding of how spying has been around since at least ancient Greece, if not even earlier. Students will see how spying influenced not only the development of how countries interact with one another, but also how some everyday inventions were developed as a result of spying. Students will be required to complete various types of assignments, analyze videos and articles, and compare/contrast popular culture’s understanding of spying to what spying really is.
