Homeland Security Specialization - M.S. in Emergency Management

Homeland Security

Protecting the nation from attacks means more than securing its borders and transportation systems.

The Homeland Security specialization explores the role of government and nongovernment agencies in providing protection and response during critical incidents. You will evaluate current policies and strategies as they relate to issues such as communication, technology, and terrorism.
