The Department of Homeland/Corporate Security Studies, as part of the College of Liberal Arts, exists to serve students interested in security careers and to equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills to become the security leaders of tomorrow. The Department of Homeland/Corporate Security Studies offers a Bachelor of Science in Homeland Security degree and a Bachelor of Science in Corporate Security (private security management) degree.  The Bachelor of Science in Corporate Security has two concentrations:  Fraud and Organizational Security.  The Organizational Security concentration prepares students to protect people, property, information, and assets.  This concentration provides a substantial amount of knowledge needed to take the various certifications offered by ASIS International.  The Fraud concentration dives deeper into the protection of the economic assets-both tangible and intangible.  The Fraud concentration provides a substantial amount of the knowledge needed to take the Certified Fraud Examiners certification offered by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.  

 

The Homeland Security and Corporate Security majors prepare students for careers in both the private and public sector.  The degrees also provide a foundation for students who want to pursue advanced degrees in the study of security. 

 

In addition to the two majors, the department offers minors in the following:  Fraud, Homeland Security, and Organizational Security.   Three certificates are also offered:  Fraud, Homeland Security, and Organizational Security.
