Policy & Citizenship Studies, in collaboration with Curriculum &
Instruction, Social Sciences, is offering a Program in National Security
Studies for Senior High School social studies teachers and students.
- The purpose of this program is to develop
senior high school students' interest in National Security and its
importance and impact in global, national, and local affairs.
- The program consists of five major
events: Two teacher workshops, two senior high school student
simulations, and a week-long Summer Institute on National Securities
Studies. The teacher workshops will be utilized to prepare teachers for

teachers attending the student simulations. No substitute coverage is
needed for the teacher workshops on November 4, 2008 and February 6,
