Department of Intelligence and Security Studies launches lecture series on national security

The Citadel’s Department of Intelligence and Security Studies, one of the fastest-growing programs on campus, is launching a new, virtual lecture series to cover a wide range of topics related to national security.

The Emerging Topics Lecture Series is open to the public, and is especially designed for Citadel cadets and students, and others interested in hearing national security issues by Citadel faculty members, alongside other international experts.

Due to the COVID-19 environment, the Emerging Topics Lecture Series will be held virtually, via Zoom.

The first three forums will be held on different days — and at different times — in October.

The lecture names, panelists and Zoom links can all be found below.
