Bachelor in Homeland Security

General

Program Description

Emergency preparedness has long been an important part of government policy at the federal, state, and local levels; within the last decade, the concept of homeland security has been developed to incorporate emergency management as well as the task of protecting the United States from terrorist attacks. The B.S. in Homeland Security program teaches the theories, models, tools, and techniques needed to effectively prepare for and mitigate the effects of natural, manmade, or terrorist disasters. The Homeland Security curriculum is designed to give students both theoretical and practical knowledge in homeland security, terrorism, domestic and international law, and emergency management. The curriculum supports the development of a global perspective, enhanced interpersonal skills, and increased awareness of the current state of homeland security.

The Homeland Security program is offered as a non-traditional degree completion program for adult learners. Students entering directly into the Homeland Security Core sequence must transfer in at least applicable 60 credits. Students without transfer credits may enter the AS in Business, and then move into the Homeland Security Core.
