Homeland Security

The Homeland Security Minor is most appropriate for students in public safety disciplines wishing to enhance their credentials in this important and growing area of study. Students in health, engineering technologies, legal studies, or business may also benefit from this minor. The course of study provides a survey of the issues in Homeland Security through the lens of the history of terrorism with applied courses supporting theoretical study in the discipline. While the focus of study is the responsibility of law enforcement in Homeland Security, other disciplines will find the topics interesting and timely.
