The Graduate Certificate in Homeland Security and Emergency Management is a 15-credit-hour program of study. The certificate program is flexible enough to be adapted to the needs of pre-career and in-service individuals.
Graduate students in other disciplines can use the program to supplement their primary fields with course work in homeland security and emergency management, possibly using the certificate courses as part of a doctoral or master’s degree minor.
Career employees of public and private sector agencies seeking courses in homeland security and emergency management, especially those changing from professional or technical roles to managerial roles, should find the certificate program beneficial.
Students who successfully complete the certificate can apply the 15 credit hours toward SPEA’s Master of Science in Criminal Justice and Public Safety degree if they choose to continue their graduate-level education.
