The minor has an interdisciplinary focus that emphasizes on the local community and on the challenges that public managers encounter.

The Global Security Studies minor prepares students for careers in intelligence, homeland security, and other sectors of the global economy, through advanced interdisciplinary studies. Students will acquire the skill sets necessary for professions in the context of global intelligence/security.
