They explore interagency and intergovernmental relations, the U.S. homeland security strategy, as well as mitigation, planning, response, and recovery phases related to a national security incident.
The program is also designed to prepare students with education that aligns with industry practices and current U.S. Department of Homeland Security policies. The Bachelor of Arts in Homeland Security is offered entirely online, allowing working adults the flexibility to fit a respected education into their busy lives. Students interact and learn from expert practitioners.

Additionally, students join a dedicated community of professionals and volunteers who share a strong commitment to safeguard the nation while standing ready to respond if disaster strikes.
