About the MSCHSA Program

The Master of Science in Cyber and Homeland Security Administration (MSCHSA) program is administered by the School of Administrative Science (SAS) from the Metropolitan Campus and is conducted off-campus (week nights and Saturdays) and online. Both Petrocelli College of Continuing Education and SAS are dedicated to providing experiential learning to adults through non-traditional formats.

The MSCHSA program focuses on practical and theoretical aspects of enforcing and ensuring homeland security and includes several areas of specialization. There is also a strong emphasis on leadership throughout the program.

The goals of the program are to:

  • Provide graduate level studies for the non-traditional student involved in homeland security,
  • support success of the students in the educational process,
  • contribute to preparation of world citizens through global education, and
  • encourage the development of high-quality, applied research for the practitioners in the field of homeland security.
