Dr. Rogers joined the faculty of the College of Humanities and Fine Arts as a Professor of Politics in January 2006. He received his Ph.D. from American University in Washington D.C., where he majored in Soviet studies, international relations and environmental politics. He has a B.S. in Meteorology from the University of Oklahoma and served as a weather forecaster for four years. He graduated from the U.S. Air Force Russian Language School at the University of Syracuse, worked for several years as an intelligence officer and Soviet/East Europe political-military affairs analyst in Washington D.C., served as a Team Chief for U.S. INF Treaty inspection teams in the former Soviet Union, and was the Director of Comparative and Area Studies at the USAF Academy.
