COLLEGE TO OFFER NATIONAL SECURITY STUDIES PROGRAM


1/4/2006

Pittsburgh, PA -- In a post 9-11 world, the demand for people with expert training and education in national security has grown dramatically. In the fall of 2006, La Roche College will respond to this crucial need by becoming the only institution in southwestern Pennsylvania to offer a Bachelor of Science in National Security Studies, a comprehensive four-year undergraduate degree program.

“La Roche’s liberal arts setting is the perfect backdrop for the interdisciplinary nature of the national security studies major,” said Howard Ishiyama, Ph.D., vice president for academic affairs. “The program is designed to prepare academically superior students for entry level positions in state or federal agencies that have as part of their mission the defense of the homeland or the implementation of U.S. foreign policy and strategic objectives.”

Students who are accepted into the program will develop foreign language skills, statistical techniques and computer application and data management skills. They will also be required to develop oral presentation and analytical writing skills. In addition, students will be required to complete an internship or cooperative program, thereby allowing them to acquire practical, hands-on experience before they graduate.
