Homeland Security, Minor
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, criminology, 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.
