Homeland Security Program Comes to Missouri State


Missouri State University has been chosen as one of only two universities in the country to provide a Center for Homeland Security program to its students. KSMU's Greg Leuthen has more on the program.

The Naval Post Graduate School and the U.S. National Guard have chosen Missouri State University to offer one of its pilot graduate programs called the Center for Homeland Security.

Arizona State is the only other school offering this program.

The program will teach students about strategic planning and other aspects of homeland security.

Bernie McCarthy is the director of the newly formed Center for Homeland Security at MSU.

He explains how MSU was chosen and what some of the university's responsibilities are.

The program will consist of four sequential courses beginning with the foundations of home land security and defense and concluding with a capstone course where students will apply the skills they have learned to real world problems.

McCarthy says that once the course work of the program is completed, students will receive a certificate enabling them to work in a variety of positions in the field of homeland security.

The first course in the Center for Homeland Security program will be available during the spring 2008 semester.
