The ability to prevent acts of international terrorism, and to cope with them if they
occur, will be at the forefront of many nations' national security agendas for years
to come. Given both the enormity and novelty of the task (at least for the United
States), the development of new educational programs has become a vital part of national
efforts to protect homeland security.
The graduate certificate program in Homeland Security at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies is one of the first, and most comprehensive, efforts to address this critical need and offers a spectrum of approaches to becoming a specialist in a challenging field. As employment opportunities expand at all levels of government and in the private sector, graduates with a homeland security certificate will be well prepared to serve as administrators, executives, analysts and consultants.
Please note: this is not a stand-alone certificate. Interested students must apply and be accepted to an MA program within the Josef Korbel School to then pursue this certificate in conjunction with an MA.
