The BS in Homeland Security was created due to the complex and diverse national security environment we face domestically and internationally. Many professions are affected by changes in national security legislation and directives from the Department of Homeland Security and related agencies. Programs that prepare students in safety, emergency management, leadership positions in government or ROTC can benefit from this minor. Furthermore, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Governor’s Office of Homeland Security has been tasked to protect people, assets and infrastructure and act as the liaison between the federal government and the private sector within Pennsylvania. This office operates as part of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania State Police, where many past, current and future students either have or will have secured careers. Therefore, students within the Criminology and Criminal Justice major will benefit from this minor.
