Homeland Security and Emergency Management (Graduate Certificate)


Get Started button


The nation's growing homeland security issues have created the need for professionals trained in emergency management.

The Certificate in Homeland Security and Emergency Management is an interdisciplinary graduate certificate program designed for people who work or will work in all levels of government, or with government contractors, private firms, and nongovernmental organizations.

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.

As a student in the program, you complete 15 credit hours of graduate course work from the School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Required courses include emergency management, risk analysis for public safety, and national and homeland security in America, and two additional SPEA courses.

Please note: You must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university to apply.
