About the Program

The Master of Science in Homeland Security (MSHS) 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 MSHS 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.

Program Highlights

The MSHS program is a 36-credit graduate program divided into 12 courses. Tuition includes 50% scholarship for all applicants. All students will be required to complete four mandatory courses: Homeland Security and Constitutional Issues; Research and Policy Analysis; Weapons of Mass Destruction/Terrorism Awareness; and Strategic Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation with a thesis. Certain areas of specialization have additional course requirements. The program is designed for off-campus and online delivery, although courses will also be offered in a blended-model with off-campus classes in a traditional classroom setting combined with online work.
