THE UNIVERSITY RECENTLY RECEIVED A NEARLY $1.9 MILLION GRANT FROM THE U.S. DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE AGENCY.
THE GRANT WILL EXPAND AND TRANSFORM THE SCOPE OF UTEP’S INTELLIGENCE AND NATIONAL SECURITY STUDIES PROGRAM.
THE PROGRAM WILL BE REBRANDED INTO THE NATIONAL SECURITY STUDIES INSTITUTE, WHICH WILL HAVE A BROADER ACADEMIC FOCUS AND ADD A SPECIFIC RESEARCH ARM.
THE NEW INSTITUTE WILL INTRODUCE A BACHELOR’S DEGREE THAT INCLUDES LINGUISTIC, CULTURAL AND ANALYTIC SPECIALTIES, AS WELL AS A GRADUATE CERTIFICATE.
