Master of Arts in Criminal Justice Homeland Security
Homeland security is much more than anti-terrorism. It’s about all hazards. It involves how we handle natural disasters and how we secure our transportation hubs. And it's critical on all levels, from the national Department of Homeland Security to state and local offices.
Monmouth University is a partner to the Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS) at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California and has based our curriculum on their nationally recognized program. We also participate in the University and Agency Partnership Initiative, giving you access to the Homeland Security Digital Library (HSDL), a national collection of documents related to homeland security policy, strategy and organizational management.
Because we’re close to New York and New Jersey's crossings, ports, refineries and the Statue of Liberty, our faculty and instructors ― who are active practitioners in the field ― clearly understand potential threats to homeland security. Their unparalleled familiarity with these dangers will give you a unique insider’s perspective on managing and mitigating the risks to our safety.
