Saudi college to start degree course on security studies

RIYADH, June 4, 2016

Saudi-based King Fahd Security College has signed a collaboration agreement with University of New Haven (UNH), a leading educational institution in the US, to start a new four-year baccalaureate degree program in security studies in capital Riyadh.

The agreement was signed by General Major Saad Abdullah Alkhelawi, the general director of King Fahd Security College, and Steven H. Kaplan, the UNH president under the patronage of Prince Mohammed bin Naif bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister, and Minister of the Interior during the King Fahd Security College Annual Commencement this week.

The University of New Haven is a private, top-tier comprehensive institution recognized as a national leader in experiential education. Founded in 1920, the university enrolls 1,800 graduate students and more than 4,600 undergraduates.

The new program will be delivered at King Fahd Security College (KFSC) in Riyadh.

As per the agreement, experts from UNH's Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences will advise their counterparts at KFSC on the creation and accreditation in the kingdom of a baccalaureate degree in security studies with three specialisation tracks: criminal justice, homeland security and intelligence studies.

"We are excited to put the UNH's world-renowned programs in criminal justice, national security, and forensic science studies at the service of Saudi Arabia's next generation of security professionals," remarked Kaplan.

"This agreement deepens longstanding bilateral educational co-operation between the US and Saudi Arabia, and we are honoured to support the further development of security expertise upon which so many in the region and beyond depend," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
