Veteran Studies Program

The Veterans Studies Program (VTS) offers a unique, multi-disciplinary program that provides veterans and non-veteran students a foundation of understanding regarding military structure, culture, combat, and the psychological and physiological changes resulting from military service. This first-of-its-kind program is dedicated to educating non-veterans about Veteran issues. The VTS program facilitates an environment of inquiry about the transformative nature of military service to include the return to civilian life. The program provides students the knowledge necessary to improve services for veterans and their interation and relations with veterans.
