Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Catalog Search

The Certificate in Security Studies is a baccalaureate certificate program housed within the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences and is multi-disciplinary in incorporating four departments: Political Science; Language and Literature (Romance Languages); Criminal Justice (Institute for Homeland Security and Workforce Development); and Environmental, Earth, and Geospatial Sciences (Geographic Information Systems).

Our mission is to provide students with a strong foundation for the evolving Twenty-First Century globalized job market. The goal is to prepare students for a career in the security area in taking a cultural approach. Security Studies has distinct regional foci and will concentrate on the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa, but is open to specialization in other regions of the world. With historical and transnational insights grounded in analytical and linguistic skills, students will have the opportunity to augment quantitative skills.
