NSSPI faculty are proud to offer distance education opportunities for students and professionals who wish to learn more about nuclear security, nonproliferation and safeguards. Classes can be viewed real-time or viewed later from a recording accessible through the Texas A&M University’s distance education website.
This program is available to:
- Active Texas A&M students and non-degree seeking students: college credit is given and can be applied to a degree at Texas A&M University or another university (if that university chooses to accept the courses)
- Professionals seeking continuing education credit (CEUs): Texas A&M awards 1 CEU per 10 hours of instruction. Professional societies may also give their own credit for these courses.
Our online course offerings can be applied to the Academic Graduate Certificate in Nuclear Security.
Registering for the courses
Current Texas A&M students can register for the distance section (700) of the courses through Howdy.
Non-degree-seeking students must submit an application through ApplyTexas and first be accepted and admitted to the university.
Professionals seeking continuing education credits should contact NSSPI directly for more information.
