Purpose: This program is designed for students interested in a career in national security or furthering a career that requires knowledge of national security issues. Upon successful completion of the program, students will understand the contemporary local, national, and global security issues, operations, and investigations affecting the United States. Students will study the hostile behaviors and activities directed against the United States from various ethnic, cultural, organizational, age, institutional, and social aspects. Graduates will be able to identify the threats facing the United States and describe the various options available to U.S. government agencies to thwart or neutralize these hostile activities. It must be noted that students completing this program must still pass a lengthy background investigation in order to obtain a security clearance required for employment in national security organizations. This program also is designed to meet the needs of employers in public and private industry, as well as the 18 federal agencies that comprise the intelligence community.
