The KFSC is charged with providing the highest quality security-related baccalaureate education to create the next generation of leaders for the Ministry of Interior. The University of New Haven has been engaged by the KFSC to assist them fully in transforming their current one-year, post baccalaureate leadership training program into a four-year bachelor's degree program in security studies.


The first cohort of students was admitted in Fall 2016 to a four-year Bachelor of Science program in security studies. The program seeks to deliver an innovative curriculum in a technology-enabled active learning environment with small class sizes. This initiative builds upon over eight years of cooperation and interaction between the Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences at the University of New Haven and the Ministry of the Interior.
