Welcome to the School of Security and Global Studies

The programs taught in the School of Security & Global Studies truly embody our motto, "Educating Those Who Serve.” Students in this school have an understanding of the world that appreciates the differences in political, economic, and social cultures. Our faculty members are highly credentialed and respected leaders in their fields, and many of them currently work in the U.S. government. Likewise, our graduates are employed in leadership positions at agencies ranging from the Departments of State, Defense, and Homeland Security to the intelligence services, as well as private businesses throughout the world. We are committed to helping students think in ways they haven’t thought before, and to apply educational theories to real-world challenges.
