Graduate Certificate in Transnational Security

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Security is everyone's business. The end of the Cold War has actually led to a proliferation of security challenges. From the rise in internal conflicts in the developing world to the threats of terrorism and transnational criminality, modern states face a complex and interconnected range of issues. The discipline of "security studies" has evolved, and is now much less concerned with state-to-state military confrontation, and has moved into fields from epidemiology and criminology to development and political science.
