Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree Programs in Homeland Security

Hear TESU graduates talk about our Homeland Security programs.

Protect your country and your community and prepare to lead others in homeland security and emergency preparedness — one of the most vital areas of American public policy today. Natural disasters, terrorist attacks and cyberterrorism continue to pose threats to our country post-9/11. There is an ongoing need for knowledgeable professionals who work to keep us safe and secure.

The Master of Science in Homeland Security degree from Thomas Edison State University (TESU) is an online degree program offering a unique curriculum encompassing domestic and global issues in security and resilience and developing competencies in theory, analysis, practice and policymaking.

Explore the roles of technology, intelligence, risk assessment and law in establishing protection policies and procedures and in responding to and mitigating threats and disasters, whether natural or man-made. Develop policy, establish objectives and understand the impact of operational decisions in domestic and international arenas. Dive into the five mission areas of the homeland security enterprise: terrorism, border security, cybersecurity, immigration, administration and emergency management.

For students with backgrounds in healthcare, engineering, business and law, our program will prepare you to use what you learn in various security and hazardous situations.
