Karen K. Petersen
I am the Interim Dean of Liberal Arts and a Professor of Political Science & International Relations at Middle Tennessee State University. I have lived in Tennessee since 1995 and am engaged in the community through my church.
My research and teaching interests predominantly relate to international conflict
(including interstate conflict, international terrorism, and other forms of asymmetric
conflict). I have extensive administrative training and experience in Student Learning
Outcomes Assessment (across a broad array of disciplines), accreditation, student
retention, and other administrative matters. You can find out about my professional
