Share Article

During free webinar, the Provost of Student Services, and previously Dean of Henley-Putnam’s Terrorism and Counterterrorism program, will discuss careers in counterterrorism and intelligence.

Henley-Putnam University’s next free webinar takes an in-depth look at careers in counterterrorism and intelligence, and the ways in which those careers will change over the next several years.

On Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at 1:00 PM, EST, Ms. Amanda Morrow-Jensen will discuss the ever-changing fields of counterterrorism and intelligence and the ways in which people in the field and new to the field can approach building a career in these areas.

“The fields of counterterrorism and intelligence are so complex at this point, and so influenced by rapid changes in technology, that it is quite challenging to find a starting point and a career path for those outside the field, and even those inside the field,” says Morrow-Jensen. “Getting a clear picture of not just where the industry is now, but where it will likely evolve to be over the next ten years, is the first step in mapping out your own goals, ambitions, and interests, and matching that with educational objectives and other academic priorities.”

Amanda Morrow-Jensen is currently the Provost of Student Services at Henley-Putnam. Prior to becoming Provost, she was the Dean of Henley-Putnam University’s Terrorism and Counterterrorism Studies Program and a longtime faculty member. She is also the founder and Director of the University’s Foreign Language Development.

The Henley-Putnam webinar series, launched in 2009, was designed to bring the hands-on experience of former members of the CIA, Secret Service, FBI, and other elements of the intelligence and federal law enforcement communities to those seeking careers in Strategic Security. Past webinars are archived on the University’s site and accessible at http://www.henley-putnam.edu/594-238.htm.

The webinar is open to the public and completely free of charge. Those who would like to attend can register at by visiting https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/903588258.

The series is one of many career resources offered by Henley-Putnam University.

Through its online career portal, Henley-Putnam helps students research careers, explore University programs, prepare for a job search, locate employers and gain basic knowledge of the Strategic Security field.
