Online Homeland Security & Emergency Management Bachelor's Degree Program
In the Bachelor of Arts in Homeland Security and Emergency Management degree, you will consider counter-terrorism, emergency planning for natural disasters, response to terrorism, and research and analysis. In the post-911 era, the US government created the Department of Homeland Security, which prepares for, prevents, and responds to domestic emergencies. Along with the need for tightened security, there is a need for emergency management to deal with the consequences of attacks and natural disasters. This comprehensive degree program educates security professionals in both areas. You will learn in-depth emergency planning and response, study the cultural and political causes of terrorism, and search for solutions.
