programs: homeland security studies
The Homeland Security Studies program provides a detailed overview of the two broad homeland security categories – terrorism and disasters – from a managerial perspective, with an emphasis on leadership and decision making. Because the rapid rate of change is a constant, the ability to assess, analyze and act in a dynamic environment are essential elements of this program. Recent natural disasters and the arrival of international terrorism to the continental United States have made homeland security a rapidly growing field with a high demand for skilled leadership and informed management, both in the public sector and within private industry. Students may earn a bachelor of arts degree, a minor, a post-baccalaureate certificate or a master’s degree in professional studies.
Tulane’s Homeland Security Studies program has been a member of the nation’s leading program for establishing and sharing homeland security curricula since 2007. The Naval Postgraduate School Center for Homeland Defense and Security’s University and Agency Partnership Initiative (UAPI) reached a milestone on 31 January 2011 as the number of education partners topped 1,000.
