Homeland Security: A.S.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

Homeland Security is one of the fastest growing fields in the area of security and law enforcement.  The concept of homeland security encompasses more than enforcing local, state, and federal laws; it also includes recognition of the fact that many issues cross typical job-function boundaries.  It involves hazard prevention and mitigation, safeguarding infrastructure assets, and protection of private sector interests.  While most people think of homeland security in terms of responding to terrorism, the responsibility of this function is much broader and encompasses areas of emergency management as well as the typical safety, security, and policing functions.  This degree is designed both to allow students to enter the workforce after graduation, and to prepare themselves for transfer to a four-year college or university, and thus eventually to move into management in the field.

This model is a two-year course schedule for students meeting all program requirements and deciding to pursue full-time study. Schedules will be redesigned for those requiring preparatory courses or those deciding to pursue part-time study.
