About the course
The Master of Science in Homeland Security and Emergency Management (MSHSEM) represents an interdisciplinary area of research and application that brings together the fields of homeland security, terrorism, and emergency management as they relate to man-made and natural disasters. The terrorist events of 9/11 highlighted the national and international need for individuals with a homeland security and emergency management degree and experienced professionals in the area of homeland security and emergency management. Naturally occurring events such as Hurricane Katrina, the Southern California Wildfires, Joplin tornados, and Japanese tsunami are further evidence of the ongoing requirement for specialized knowledge in this area. Businesses, governments, and private industry must be able to prepare for, respond to, and recover from potentially debilitating natural and man-made catastrophes.
