This quality online homeland security degree program is sequentially constructed to correspond to the “four pillars” of the National Preparedness Goal (2011) and the Missions of the Strategic Plan of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) (2012). The pillars are: (1) Prevent, (2) Protect, (3) Respond, and (4) Recover. This coverage format will ensure that all essential areas are addressed so that learners will be assured fundamental coverage of the Homeland Security scope of responsibilities.
With the enactment of the Homeland Security Act in 2002, the United States Congress created the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The department’s Core Mission includes preventing terrorism and enhancing security; managing our borders; administering immigration laws; securing cyberspace; and ensuring disaster resilience. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is a part of DHS and an integral component of America’s emergency management enterprise, working to ensure the successful preparation for, protection against, response to, recovery from, and mitigation of all hazards.
This coverage format will help ensure that all essential areas are addressed so that learners will be assured fundamental coverage of the Homeland Security scope of responsibilities. Courses will include scenarios and disaster simulation exercises to provide a sense of realism. The program begins with exploring the fundamentals and ethics of HLS, moves to interagency planning, and ultimately ends with the Capstone Course in which the student submits original work that will reflect an integration of all coursework topics.
