Our program is designed to produce leaders with an advanced understanding of how politics and policy interact to influence real-world decisions in homeland security and emergency response.
Build knowledge and skills that can apply to leadership roles in the public and private sectors, and to organizations that address policy, enforce laws, or respond to disasters.
Our master’s program equips graduates for further research and study at the doctoral level. It allows for a high degree of choice in electives, so you can focus on a specific area of professional interest.
Our instructors have direct experience in federal, state, and local government, and have played roles in guiding homeland security and international relations policy. Their practical knowledge, combined with their research interests, means you can gain valuable insights into how security decisions are made.
Convenient, flexible online learning makes balancing your work and family responsibilities with graduate school more manageable. If you already work in homeland security, you can also use what you learn in your current role for immediate impact.
