Here is an update on the National Security Minor:

The national security minor is expanding. Today the program boasts a growing minor that helps students from multiple majors and colleges across campus learn more about careers in intelligence and analysis in national security. The NSST minor also helps students build writing, briefing, and analytical skills through classes that are unique to the university and reflect our conversations with hiring managers and experts in the national security enterprise. The NSST minor is the perfect way to augment a major and give students an endorsement in national security. This combination will not only expose students to classes unique in the Big Ten but also make them more competitive in the national security job market.

The UNL National Security program also features an Intelligence Community (IC) Scholars program geared directly toward students who want to become national security analysts. This competitive program has led many UNL students to jobs in intelligence analysis at the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) among many others. Finally, the National Security Program is the sponsor of the Great Plains National Security Education Community (GPNSEC) which is a student run RSO, focusing on stimulating conversations and interest in all matters national security. In the past GPNSEC has held well-publicized public panel discussions on the Syrian refugee crisis and Russian meddling in our elections. The National Security program and the NSST minor feature a diverse group of students from all backgrounds and majors who are interested in public service!
