NATCHITOCHES, La. (AP) — Northwestern State University has received approval for a Post Master's Certificate in Global Security and Intelligence from the Louisiana Board of Regents.

Joe Morris, head of the Department of Criminal Justice, History and Social Science, says the 18-hour credit program is scheduled to start this fall and will build upon the existing master's in homeland security and the work experience of the student.

Morris said the program will be the first of its kind in Louisiana and is designed to provide an analysis and understanding of the emerging challenges of globalization and the new world order, transnational security issues that present global implications and informed theories regarding the causes and control of international and domestic terrorism.
