Details

This program covers topics such as Domestic and International Terrorism, Cyber Terrorism and advance crime courses. With a Homeland Security degree or certificate, you will be well-equipped for career opportunities established as a result of the events of September 11th, 2001 and the formation of the Department of Homeland Security. Along with public law enforcement, many private companies have created new and highly effective security systems or expanded existing ones.

This program will be affiliated with the BS in Criminology and Criminal Justice and will also be available to non-CRJ majors. The certificate will enhance the bachelor's program by incorporating an additional credential to ASU Online students.
