Veterans 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.
