Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

The academic discipline of homeland security emerged due to the tragic events of 9/11.  After 9/11 and other subsequent man-made disasters (hacking) the field of policing now incorporates the security and protection of people, key assets and critical infrastructures.  The need for security and the expansion of traditional policing has left many current practitioners without the appropriate skills needed to confront the challenges of the 21st century.  This certificate will provide the basic foundation about the scope of homeland security, the fundamentals of terrorism, risk analysis, and protecting infrastructure and key assets.
