Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) August 24, 2009 -
Drexel University Online, a leader in online degree programs, has added a new program to its offerings, the online Graduate Certificate in Homeland Security Management from Drexel's Goodwin College of Professional Studies.
Drexel's online Graduate Certificate in Homeland Security Management seeks to produce professionals practicing in the defense and security of the homeland in both the public and private sectors. This certificate provides, in a concentrated format, the most contemporary knowledge and skills needed in this important area for students who do not wish to pursue a master's degree, but who would value a credential that demonstrates their learning.
Graduates of this program will be able to: design and modify plans and programs at federal, state, and/or local levels to reflect the evolving strategic policy issues associated with a statutory and presidential direction for homeland security; recognize terrorist groups' proclivities in order to forecast the risks, types and orders of magnitude of terrorist threats most likely to confront the nation-state; develop policies, procedures, and protocols to allow seamless agency integration from prevention to incident response scenarios; and recognize the multidisciplinary nature of homeland security functions and be able to assess and integrate various functional areas.
"We're very proud to offer our students the outstanding Drexel curriculum within this convenient online format," said Dr. Kenneth Hartman, academic director for Drexel University Online. "All of our online programs, including our online Graduate Certificate in Homeland Security Management are taught by the same world-renowned faculty as our on-campus courses."
Applications for Drexel's online Graduate Certificate in Homeland Security Management are now being accepted for fall 2009. For more information, visit Drexel's online degree website or call (877) 215-0009.
