Marian University will offer undergraduate program in Homeland Security2/24/2010FOND DU LAC, Wis. - Marian University has created a new undergraduate program in Homeland Security that will be available for students in September 2010.The demand for well-educated homeland security professionals continues to grow and aspiring college students are able to meet these needs through new program opportunities. This new undergraduate degree, offered in Marian's traditional day program, compliments a minor field of study, a leadership certificate and a Homeland Security major already being offered through Marian's adult accelerated program."This new program is a tremendous opportunity not only for Marian's current students, but also for those considering a college degree," states Lieutenant Colonel Dan Zimmerman, Marian University's director of Homeland Security Programs and retired Regular Army Intelligence officer. "Additionally, the program opens new scholarship and internship possibilities not previously available to current and prospective Marian students."While other homeland security-related programs have emerged, many are solely online. Combining Marian's applied approach to teaching with the liberal arts curriculum, the Homeland Security program allows students the opportunity for a quality face-to-face learning experience, which is otherwise unmatched in Wisconsin and throughout the Midwest.The new Homeland Security program is also designed to accommodate the educational needs of our nation's service men and women, by providing college credit for their prior military training.For more information, please contact the Marian University School of Criminal Justice at 920-923-7678.
