Emergency Management & Homeland Security
Whether it’s from natural disasters or a threat from beyond our borders, you have a desire to serve and protect this nation and its people. Learn what it takes to prepare for homeland security and disaster preparation careers in local, state or federal organizations with your Bachelor of Science in Emergency Management and Homeland Security from Post University.
Students will develop skills to plan and prepare for pending emergencies, manage operations during an emergency, and conduct recovery efforts after an emergency.
This program will immerse students in modern methodologies used to secure the homeland, including preparation for and response to acts of terrorism, especially the use of weapons of mass destruction. Students will be provided a historical awareness of terrorism, particularly within the United States and its interests abroad. This program includes the following applied concentration tracks:
- Criminal Justice Leadership
- Cybersecurity & Information Assurance
Upon graduation, you will receive a bachelor’s degree and be prepared to enter a career in a wide array of local, state or federal emergency management and homeland security organizations, including emergency services, law enforcement, fire services, homeland security and disaster recovery.
The Bachelor of Science in Emergency Management and Homeland Security degree is not designed to fulfill the educational requirements for any professional credential, such as a police officer certification. Professional credentials also have other requirements outside of education. Law enforcement and other public safety positions often require testing, specialized trainings, background checks, and more. Job requirements also vary by jurisdiction, involving the local, state, or national levels.
