Program Details

The School of Criminal Justice at Michigan State University has, along with colleges across campus, created a three-course certification program that is available completely online. This program is designed for working professionals and graduate students who wish to study homeland security to gain extra experience academically or for their career.

The courses in which students will participate are Homeland Security, Terrorism, and Public- Private Partnerships in Emergency Preparedness and Homeland Security. In the Homeland Security course, students will receive information about the fundeamentals of the current homeland security program. Terrorism will discuss both domestic and international terrorism, as well as an insight into the people who commit these acts. The third course in Partherships in Emergency Preparedness and Homeland Security is a lesson involving the connection between the public and private sectors that guard national security and the smaller communities. MSU is also currently developing certificate programs in food security, information security, and other similar areas.

MSU’s School of Criminal Justice is considered a national leader in topics of combining security and public safety with the legal system as well as in criminal justice scholarship. If participants are interested in applying this certificate credit to a degree program at MSU, or at another institution, they may do so.
