Security and Society is a wide-ranging program designed to take full advantage of Poland's many educational opportunities and provide students with a new perspective on global issues. This program is both an intensive and flexible experience - and one that is highly supportive of opportunities for personal and professional growth, including focused research, internships, and independent travel in the region.

The semester offering focuses on Security and Society in the Information Age. We examine current issues such cybersecurity, information warfare, and how new and social media are changing the face of modern democracies. Security and Society is based in Warsaw, Poland, an excellent vantage to study all these issues.
