Homeland Security Minor (HLS)

Penn State Harrisburg
Penn State World Campus

The Homeland Security minor provides for development of familiarity with homeland security and defense issues, including emergency management, homeland security policy, and the structure of homeland security operations. Students will come to understand the "all hazards" approach to homeland security and defense. Students will be able to develop familiarity with such aspects of homeland security and defense as emergency management, security administration, border security, and critical infrastructure through taking elective courses. Recipients of the minor would be positioned to enter the work force in entry level positions or to prepare for transition to graduate school.
