      CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Students at The Citadel's graduate school can now learn how to deal with threats to the nation's security.

      The military college in Charleston announced Monday that this fall it will begin offering a new graduate certificate in homeland security.

      The program will include homeland security concepts, policy analysis, domestic terrorism and national security threats. Five 3-credit-hour courses are required for the certificate.

      Homeland security courses will be taught by Jonathan Hoffman, former deputy assistant secretary for intergovernmental programs at the Department of Homeland Security.

      There he helped coordinate relations between state and local governments and the Department of Homeland Security.
