Hurricane Sandy. Columbine shootings. Deepwater Horizon oil spill. 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. The way in which global communities respond to natural disasters and emergency events is becoming increasingly important. Our national safety and disaster preparedness needs have shifted and grown, creating a genuine need for trained, skilled professionals. That’s where a Homeland Security Degree from Concordia University-Portland comes in.
The call to prepare, respond, and lead.
The goal of Concordia’s bachelor’s degree in Homeland Security is simple: To give you the knowledge, skills, and leadership abilities you need to make your mark in homeland security – working in risk management, transportation security, disaster response, cyber security, intelligence, public health, and homeland security.
A meaningful degree that fits your schedule.
Combining coursework with real-life experience gives you the sought-after skills employers are looking for in this growing field. At Concordia, courses are delivered in eight-week cycles in a highly flexible online format. In addition, students work in the field via internships with public agencies, private companies, and non-profit organizations. And beginning in the fall of 2014, students will be able to use Concordia University’s state-of-the-art disaster simulator, designed for use by students in our Homeland Security program.
