Bachelor of Science in Homeland Security
Concordia University - Portland
Keeping the nation safe takes a wide variety of participants. Aside from the obvious first responders, there are maritime specialists, security for private industry, transportation security specialists, cyber defenders, intelligence analysts, technology innovators, public health leaders, emergency planners, and disaster response personnel. This degree does not cater to any one of these careers in particular. Instead, it gives students the tools to critically examine emerging challenges and bring the latest thinking to bear on the problem. The coursework emphasizes critical thinking and ethical decision making. Armed with these two skills, graduates should be prepared to enter the workforce, providing added value to their employer. Additionally, these two skills are not dependent on the current conditions, but are timeless and valuable regardless of the student’s chosen career field or the stage of their career.
