Southwestern College became the first four-year Kansas educational institution to offer degrees integrating the Naval Postgraduate School in 2014. The partnership is part of the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) Center for Home University & Agency Partnership Initiative (UAPI), which brings together institutions dedicated to advancing homeland security education.

The initiative’s objectives are to strengthen the nation’s security, prevent redundant curriculum development and associated costs, facilitate nationwide collaboration among educational institutions as they develop or expand their homeland security programs and create synergy to address critical national security and defense research issues.

Southwestern College Professional Studies currently offers two degrees with the curriculum: B.S. in Security Management and M.S. in Security Administration.
