You could become part of the nation’s first line of defense against terrorist attacks and natural disaster by earning an Associate's or Bachelor's Degree in Homeland Security or a Master of Science in Homeland Security Administration.
You’ll find demand for this specialized training from local, state and federal law enforcement and public safety organizations, a wide variety of government agencies, as well as global corporations and local companies that can't afford to be unprepared.
Typical coursework includes topics like intelligence gathering and analysis, vulnerability assessment, international investigation protocols, hazardous material detection and disposal, disaster preparedness and catastrophic event response.
