Undergraduate Certificate in National Security Studies

National Security Studies Undergraduate Certificate Program

Since September 11, 2001, national security issues have become an increasingly salient aspect of our daily lives. The Undergraduate National Security Studies Certificate offers a means for better understanding this important subject in the 21st century and provides skill enhancements for students interested in national security-related careers. This certificate is an excellent compliment to many undergraduate disciplines. It may be awarded to either degree-seeking students, or to non-degree seeking students, with a bachelor's degree, who complete the requirements.

The Gordon Institute was awarded the Center for Academic Excellence in Intelligence Studies grant by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence in 2005. FIU was one of four original universities designated as Intelligence Community Centers for Academic Excellence (IC-CAE) and we are proud of this designation, which provides students with a variety of opportunities for career preparation.
