The Homeland Security Studies program provides a detailed overview of the two broad homeland security categories – terrorism and disasters – from a managerial perspective, with an emphasis on leadership and decision making. Because the rapid rate of change is a constant, the ability to assess, analyze and act in a dynamic environment are essential elements of this program. Recent natural disasters and the arrival of international terrorism to the continental United States have made homeland security a rapidly growing field with a high demand for skilled leadership and informed management, both in the public sector and within private industry. Students may earn a bachelor of arts degree, a minor, a post-baccalaureate certificate or a master’s degree in professional studies.
