ASIS and AMU partner for degree programs. (ASIS News).

ASIS has become an academic partner of American Military University (AMU) to create flexible distance-learning bachelor's and master's degree programs in security management.

The bachelor's degree offers students the choice of concentrations in information security; physical and workplace, transportation, homeland, and international security; and terrorism studies. The master's offers concentrations in business, transportation, industrial, international, and homeland security, as well as terrorism studies, fraud investigation, executive security management, and intelligence methods.

Professionals pursuing an undergraduate degree in security management can participate in AMU's academic internship program. Open to students currently employed in security management or a related field, the internship consists of five of the degree curriculum's core courses, plus credit gained for a student's professional duties. The academic courses--private security, business assets protection, protective services, physical security, and access control--can be taken in any sequence.

ASIS members will receive a 5 percent scholarship, reducing tuition to $250 per credit hour for both undergraduate and graduate programs. Undergraduate tuition includes the cost of all textbooks.

AMU, based in Charles Town, West Virginia, is part of the American Public University System, and is a private institution of higher learning licensed by the West Virginia Education Policy Commission. It is accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council. AMU focuses on the educational needs of the military, security management professionals, and law enforcement. Affiliation with the military is not a requirement for admission. AMU's faculty of more than 400 scholars has decades of relevant work experience and the highest levels of academic credentials.
