Homeland Security, Minor

The Minor in Homeland Security is an interdisciplinary learning opportunity for fostering the knowledge, skills, and abilities associated with public and private positions relating to homeland security. The program is structured for students across different academic disciplines desiring a richer understanding and an academic credential specific to homeland security. The purpose of the minor is to broaden the learner’s understanding of homeland security to complement their chosen field of study, such as criminal justice, cybersecurity, emergency management, emergency services, and national security studies, or take a combination of classes in any or all of the four areas. Those pursuing this minor will grow in their critical thinking and decision-making skillset. In addition, the program hones the learner’s ability to communicate through the written word, function, and produce deliverables within a virtual/remote environment, discover pertinent usable intelligence within large amounts of data, and gist information for building succinct briefings.
