Penn State celebrates fifth anniversary of its online homeland security graduate program

Penn State is celebrating the fifth anniversary of its online homeland security master’s degree program. In honor of the celebration, the university plans to update the program’s curriculum by working closely with the Homeland Security Advisory Council, which includes emergency management professionals and employees from the DHS, to develop new content. It currently has several new courses scheduled for upcoming semesters and it will also unveil an international program.

“Leadership in homeland security requires more cooperation with peers and a unified resources approach,” said Alexander Siedschlag, chair of Penn State’s online homeland security programs. “Resources are becoming more restricted at a time when organized crime, information security threats, natural disasters, and terrorism are growing. Cooperation and integration among nations is essential in dealing with these threats.”

The master’s program is geared toward government officials at the local, state, and national levels, military professionals, and private sector professionals interested in homeland security. The homeland security base program focuses on providing professionals with a solid foundation; students may then choose to specialize in topics such as agricultural insecurity and food defense, public health preparedness, geospatial intelligence, information security, and forensics.

The information security specialty is geared towards cyber security, risk assessment, and privacy protection. The agricultural biosecurity and food defense specialty prepares students to manage terrorist threats to the food supply. The geospatial intelligence specialty trains students how to perform environmental analysis to engage in emergency response situations. Finally, the public health preparedness program includes basic courses on public safety and health issues, but emphasizes emergency response and homeland training to manage both natural and man-made disasters.

Students also have the option to enroll in one of Penn’s other homeland security related online graduate and post baccalaureate certificate programs. The online homeland security masters program is offered through Penn State’s World Campus program, which offers a wide variety of online associate, bachelors, masters, and certificate programs.

More information about the Penn State online homeland security program is available on its website.

Pennsylvania State University has over 45,000 students across 24 campuses, making it one of America’s largest universities. Please visit its website at www.PSU.edu.
