Undergraduate Certificate in Military Resilience

Program Details

The Undergraduate Certificate in Military Resilience at Liberty University is designed for students who would like to help military personnel with the psychological, physical, and social wounds associated with military combat. Students will also be prepared to educate the service member’s family, pastors and friends about the methods to help reduce the stress of war. In addition, students should learn to address and support the spiritual needs of military service members through faith based programs. A fundamental overview of crisis response will also be evaluated with some courses emphasizing topics such as intervention models, critical incident stress, and scope of crisis response.

The program requires students to complete 18 credit hours within six designated courses. Some of the required program courses are Foundational Principles of Crisis Response, Military Career & Community Transition, and PTSD & Combat Related Trauma. Students may complete the program’s courses entirely online. During the 2013-2014 academic year, each full-time credit hour for the certificate program was $340.

The program’s courses will cover the appropriate methods for intervention and the resilience theory for current military personnel and veterans. The curriculum will provide opportunities for students to evaluate modern methods of treating psychological disorders like depression, suicidal ideation, and substance addiction found within the military population. Instructors within the program will also offer a focused analysis of the symptoms, treatments, and modern research of Combat-related PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injuries. Some additional course topics include the Resilience Life Cycle, the history of crisis response, veteran reintegration, and therapeutic needs of military families.
