Henley-Putnam School of Strategic Security

The Henley-Putnam School of Strategic Security aspires to be the leader in providing instruction in the fields of strategic security. The focus is on teaching “proactive” versus “reactive” methods. That is to say, we attempt to further the knowledge of prevention and deterrence over the instruction of reaction and response concepts as taught at many other institutions.

HPSSS offers four distinct bachelor’s degree programs, three distinct master’s degree programs, one distinct doctoral degree program, and several distinct undergraduate and graduate certificates in order to meet the future challenges of this strategic security industry. The bachelor’s programs introduce the student to the concepts and increases the student’s knowledge in intelligence, counterterrorism, nuclear enterprise security studies, strategic security, and protection. These programs emphasize professionalism, proactive strategies, a thorough understanding of the dynamics of the program area and a high-level development of skills in a discipline.
