WRITING IN APA STYLE: A GUIDE FOR STARTERS

Posted by Joseph Chan on Sep 26, 2017 4:40:44 PM

APA is an abbreviation of American Psychological Association and serves as a basic guideline for much of the writing done by Trident students. This format of writing is commonly used in the social sciences, education, and psychology fields. Students can expect to use this format at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels. It may seem intimidating at first, but there are resources available to help simplify and better understand the process.

When writing papers in APA style, students should focus on four specific areas: title page, abstract, main body, and references. Some of the basics of formatting includes one-inch margins, 12-point font, text that is double-spaced, and Times New Roman as the font of choice. The selection of headlines, presentation of statistics and numbers, and the usage of abbreviations and punctuation should also be considered.

CUT FROM THE SAME CLOTH AS TRIDENT'S STUDENTS: AN INTERVIEW WITH DR. MARK PIEFFER

Posted by Daniel Sloan on May 26, 2017 11:31:45 AM

There is no doubt that Dr. Mark Pieffer understands Trident and its community of adult learners.

Dr. Pieffer, who served as the Provost at Jones International University, joined Trident University after the closing of JIU.  In fact, as part of that closing, JIU and Trident established a partnership and many of JIU’s students and several faculty transferred to the Trident community.

It was a successful transition due to both institutions’ commitment to student success, as well as the large number of students and alumni with ties to the military.

RETURNING TO SCHOOL? HERE ARE 3 WAYS TO PREPARE

Posted by Joseph Chan on Apr 24, 2017 10:40:40 AM

Have you wanted to take your skills to the next level, perhaps for a promotion or to break into a new industry? Education will help you get there, but before you get started make sure you’re adequately prepared to begin your studies.

Here are some ways to prepare yourself before starting a degree program:

1. Admit Your Fears
The first step on your journey is to admit your fears.  These fears and concerns are also shared by other working professionals who are considering going back to school, whether it is a traditional college setting or online. By acknowledging your worries upfront, these challenges can be dispelled through understanding their cause and proactively addressing them.

Self-assessments are often helpful, and will help you as you advance further into your chosen program.

PROFILES IN SUCCESS: STEVE RICHARDS

Posted by Steve Richards, Trident Alumnus on Jan 27, 2017 11:07:44 AM

Trident helped me to fulfill my educational goals and dreams, teaching me that if I plot my goals and take things in stride I will accomplish anything. I’ve also strengthened my professional skills, which helps me to understand better what coworkers expect and how to work as a team.

Thanks to my time at Trident, I’ve improved my interpersonal skills, have become more self-aware, and have become more empathic towards others. I’ve been able to develop leadership skills so I can empower others, allowing me to put the needs of the group ahead of my own.

At first, keeping up with my education was a challenge. As I moved to different military installations, I would often lose credits enrolling in courses at different schools. It was hard not to think I was going nowhere fast, but things changed after I enrolled at Trident and worked with its faculty.

HOW EDUCATION CAN HELP PREVENT CYBERATTACKS

Posted by Daniel Sloan on Mar 2, 2016 11:00:00 AM

Last month a hospital in Los Angeles was the victim of a serious attack. Rather than the type of attack that most people would expect, the Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center lost access to its email and electronic health records for more than a week due to a cyberattack.

This is a serious crime that occurs often – a hospital in Philadelphia saw a similar attack recently, as well as small police departments in Massachusetts, Tennessee, and New Hampshire. According to the Los Angeles Times, at least 158 medical providers, insurers, and hospitals have reported being hacked since 2010.

CYBERSPACE: THE NEW BATTLEGROUND

Posted by Dr. Rudolph Bustos on Sep 8, 2015 5:00:00 AM

Growing out of asymmetric warfare—thanks to advances in technologies—is the cyber battlefield in which sensitive infrastructures are compromised or destroyed by belligerents. Pick up any newspaper or reputable internet news site, and one will read about a blatant cyberattack on a financial institution, a governmental agency, or even the Pentagon.  

Currently, the U.S. Army Cyber Command’s Cyber force has been growing exponentially for two years. The Army’s Cyber Chief, Lt. Gen. Edward C. Cardon noted: “Cyberspace continues to grow more complex, with sophisticated threats that are capable of exploiting known and unknown vulnerabilities, threatening both national security and America's economic interests.” The threat is real; the threat is growing.

The Department of Homeland Security Secretary seeks to form a new subcommittee on cybersecurity practices.
