Homeland Security - MS in Emergency Management

Return to: MS in Emergency Management  

The MS in Emergency Management program with a specialization in Homeland Security focuses on the broad range of programs, principles, and processes that support homeland security. Students explore the role that homeland security plays in both private and public sectors; analyze the threats that shape and influence US security today; and can develop relevant skills in leadership, planning, and policy development. Coursework covers the history, concepts, policies, organization, and strategies related to homeland security as well as topics that include terrorism, threat assessment, contingency planning, communication, technology, and ethical and legal issues. Students have the opportunity to apply fundamental concepts and principles of homeland security to case studies and develop their own homeland security plan. The curriculum can also help prepare students to earn certificates from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Emergency Management Institute.
