In the Post-9/11 world, few universities have the depth of curriculum and breadth of experience in homeland security education than our University.
The Bachelor of Arts in Homeland Security provides undergraduate students with a foundation in the discipline that also prepares them for graduate-level degrees and certificates. Students examine historical and evolving homeland security concepts within the broader political and national security system of the contemporary nation-state. They explore interagency and intergovernmental relations, the U.S. homeland security strategy, as well as mitigation, planning, response, and recovery phases related to a national security incident.
The program is also designed to prepare students with education that aligns with industry practices and current U.S. Department of Homeland Security policies. The Bachelor of Arts in Homeland Security is offered entirely online, allowing working adults the flexibility to fit a respected education into their busy lives. Students interact and learn from expert practitioners. Many are leaders in homeland security, intelligence, emergency management and military capacities and they bring their frontline knowledge of homeland security missions into the online discussion. Additionally, students join a dedicated community of professionals and volunteers who share a strong commitment to safeguard the nation while standing ready to respond if disaster strikes.
