In the Post-9/11 world, few universities have the depth of curriculum and breadth of experience in homeland security education than our University.
Our instructors are practitioners, many with unparalleled experience safeguarding the nation as military, intelligence, emergency management, public safety and homeland security leaders. The University is a pioneer in creating an interdisciplinary portfolio of the most critical degrees and certificates sought by homeland security professionals. And each course is taught entirely online. This unmatched flexibility gives motivated professionals the unique opportunity to learn the latest homeland security information and strategies while maintaining their existing work-life responsibilities.
Whether you're interested in a graduate or undergraduate degree or certificate, the University continually assesses and aligns its entire curriculum in accordance with industry standards and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) policies as directed by the President of the United States. This practice verifies that students are gaining career-relevant knowledge that is shaping the future of homeland security and defense.
Students learn critical concepts such as the DHS all-hazards approach in addition to emergency and disaster management, risk prevention and management, counter-terrorism, and consequence management and mitigation. Students join our tightknit network of homeland security professionals and volunteers. They share a common vision to maintain strong homeland security, reduce America's risk to terrorist threats and save lives if disaster strikes.
