  • 2nd year
  • MA International Security
  • Certificate in Homeland Security

Korbel was my first choice for a Masters level program due to the ideal location out west, the small, engaging classes, and its program standing within the global community. I have found my time at Korbel to immensely enjoyable, rewarding and relaxing at the same time. The faculty are world class and the campus is set in the perfect area for both city and nature lovers. I could not have chosen a better University, program and location for my family and me.

I hail from Cliff, NM and attended Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University where I received my BS in Global Security Intelligence. I commissioned into the Army upon graduation and have served as an Explosive Ordnance Disposal Officer for the last nine years. I am attending DU as part of the Army's Expanded Graduate school program and could not ask for a better educational opportunity that provides ample family time for those of us who need to take a knee. While at DU I plan to focus my studies on the defense of our homeland, International Political economy, and the hidden consequences of war that our veterans have experienced. I have no doubts that my time and education at Korbel will prepare me for the remainder of my Army career. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to further discuss your potential future at DU.
