Students pursuing a Homeland Security degree from a college, trade school or university will become professionals in a fast growing and much needed form of justice. Homeland Security is a relatively new concept of national security created and solidified from the attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001 which killed 2,996 innocent people in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania. The coordinated attack left the U.S. in a state of shock and surprise, instilling the unprecedented need for a national effort to prevent terrorist attacks and reduce vulnerability in addition to natural disaster preparedness, response and recovery.

The many organizations that incorporate the Department of Homeland Security are more than Federal Agencies. The DHS collaborates with many agencies such as the U.S. Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The non-military sector of the effort can be filled with well trained and educated civilians, ready willing and able to serve and protect the U.S. An advanced degree in Homeland Security from a higher education institution can provide students with the basics in safety and security issues.

Students of a Homeland Security program will be introduced to the various settings and strategic situations that require skilled first-responders. In the event of an act of terrorism, or a natural disaster the well trained individuals will be able to provide medical assistance, policing, emergency communication and agricultural sustainability. The specialized curriculum can be supplemented with a major or a minor in Criminal Justice and or Emergency Management. Earning a certificate in Homeland Security can also serve as a solid foundation for students wishing to advance in current positions.

Graduates of the degree program will contribute the needed professionalism when assessing domestic and international security issues. The acts of terrorism are not limited to physical catastrophes, but can also include computer infrastructure breaches, intelligence and confidential information espionage. The role of the graduate will to lead, manage and develop others in the prevention, planning and execution of protective abilities.
